Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of NC homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified 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 inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home 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
