Putting a house on the market in or near Iredell County? Contact HAWKINS APPRAISAL and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in 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.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

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, you need a skilled 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised 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 originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
