Putting a house on the market in or near Iredell County? Contact HAWKINS APPRAISAL and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand 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 for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult 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 once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
