Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Hiland Appraisals, LLC will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get 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 explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
