Pre-Listing Appraisal

Prior to signing a Listing Agreement, it’s in the buyer’s best interest to have an “objective” third-party opinion. At G&J Manfra Real Estate Appraisals, Inc we offer a comprehensive pre-listing appraisal, allowing both yourself and the agent to have a precise depiction of your home’s features as well as a detailed analysis of the newest  similar sales or as they are commonly referred to, “Comps.”

Check out some of the benefits of a professional appraisal:

  • Extremely significant negotiation tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide buyer’s with written proof of your home’s condition
  • Be aware of issues and remove last-minute repair annoyances that will defer a closing
  • Eradicate the delay for the buyer or their mortgage company to get the appraisal done on their own

Generally, people are astonished when they discover the market value of their property is a lot more than expected. By investing in a professional appraisal, people are able to receive thousands of dollars more than what they thought when their home was sold. Others, however, believe their home’s value is more than it actually is and an appraisal allows them to realistically price their home.

Before listing your home, you may ask yourself the following questions, “Should I paint my entire house?”, “Do I need a second bathroom?”, “What about a kitchen remodel?” It’s important to know that not every remodel or renovation will add value to your home. The team at G&J Manfra Real Estate Appraisals, Inc has no concern in what amount the property sells for.  Our fees do not involve a percentage of the sales price. Instead, they are based on efforts to finish the report.  Contact our professional staff to help make your decision on investing in a new home!
