Selling your home in or near Ashe County? Contact Hiland Appraisals, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

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 if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
