Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Campbell and Cress Appraisal Service, LLC will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

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.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more NC homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting 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 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting 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
