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 in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than 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
