Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown disputes that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report.
