A house is the largest purchase most people will make in their
lives. When you find the house you want to spend the rest
of your life in it pays to get an appraisal done prior to making
an offer. Property have moved rapidly in both
directions over the last several years and knowing what a
property is worth prior to making an offer can save you
considerable time and money.
When we conduct a pre-offer appraisal GNYAS will analyze recent
sales in the area, current listings and properties that
have recently gone into contract. We have access to the
best and most recent data available through MLS, private data
services and extensive contact's in the industry. We'll let you know which
direction prices are trending in your prospective neighborhood
and any factors that may have an adverse impact on the market
value of the property. The appraisal can be either a full
appraisal (a full inspection of the property) a drive-by appraisal (we inspect the property from the street) or a desk
review appraisal where we rely on information provided in the
listing or from the buyer. Prices range from $150 to $350
for a typical single family house.
Remember, realtors have a stake in selling you the house and you
mortgage lender has a stake in getting your loan to close.
Isn't it worth it to spend a relatively small amount of money to
get an unbiased opinion of what the property you are going to
buy is really worth.

Once you've decided to sell your house the most important
decision you will make is how much to ask for it.
Set the price too low and you could be leaving thousands of
dollars on the table. Set the price to high and your house
can languish on the market forever.
A pre-listing appraisal by one of GNYAS's appraisers will let you set the
price right so you can sell your property for a fair price and
do it quickly. Many people think they know what their
house is worth based on what they heard the house "down the
block" sold for. There are two problems with this.
The first is housing market is going through a period of rapid
price changes. What the house down the street sold for a
year ago may have little bearing on the value of you property
right now. Second is that often times the price you
heard a property sold for is quite different from the price it
actually did sell for.
When we conduct a pre-listing appraisal GNYAS will analyze
recent sales in the area, current listings that your house will
be competing with and properties that have recently gone into
contract. We have access to the best and most recent data available through MLS,
private data services and extensive contact's in the industry. We'll
let you know how many houses are on the market, which direction
prices are trending, and any factors that may be having an
impact impact on the market values in your neighborhood.
