Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from HAWKINS APPRAISAL.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few NC homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
