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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 a professional appraiser does, 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 need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few AL homeowners are deciding 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get 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 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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
