Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

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 useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months.
