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 a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
