Selling your home in or near Iredell County? Contact HAWKINS APPRAISAL and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

An increasing amount of NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, 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 sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
