Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Watson Appraisal Services, Inc will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be 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 realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
