Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Hiland Appraisals, LLC.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
