Getting an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service before putting your Raleigh home on the market saves you time and money.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
