Getting an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Tuscaloosa home on the market saves you time and money.

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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few AL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult 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 sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
