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

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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

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

More and more NC homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of their home's value, 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 waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
