Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact GVI Appraisals, Inc.
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's changing market.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced real estate agent.
That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Improvements that add value to your home
There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and GVI Appraisals, Inc. can help with that. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
