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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more NC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But 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 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting 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.
