Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

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

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few NC homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
