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. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, 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, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home 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
