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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

Quite a few NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
