Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking 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.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more 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, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, 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.
