Getting an appraisal from HAWKINS APPRAISAL before putting your Statesville home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
