Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, it's very hard to take an objective look at 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on 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. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
