Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
