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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

An increasing amount of AL homeowners are choosing 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is 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 tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
