Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Watson Appraisal Services, Inc.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, 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 have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few 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, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very hard 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand 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 in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
