Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

More and more 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, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
