Putting a house on the market in or near Iredell County? Contact HAWKINS APPRAISAL and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of NC homeowners are making the decision 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust 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
