Putting a house on the market in or near Iredell County? Contact Campbell and Cress Appraisal Service, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, 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 assistance of a real estate agent.

We will tell you 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 beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers 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 delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months.
