Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc..

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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

An increasing amount of AL homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months.
