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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get 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?

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 for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
