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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

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 for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
