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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few NC homeowners are deciding 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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 asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
