Getting an appraisal from Watson Appraisal Services, Inc before putting your Wake County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few NC homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought.
