Selling your home in or near Iredell County? Contact HAWKINS APPRAISAL and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

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

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 if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is a great deal 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 expected they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
