Selling your home in or near Wake County? Contact James Earp Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.
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 the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.
This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?
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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
