Selling your home in or near Wake County? Contact Morrision Singleton and make sure you're setting the price 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 every penny in the long run! Unless a 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 real estate market forces.

You, as a homeowner, might be fixated on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only worth the price another person is willing to give you.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of North Carolina homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very hard to be objective about your 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining 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 eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide
People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
