Getting an appraisal from Catawba Valley Appraisal before putting your 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 pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of 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 how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?
Quite a few NC homeowners are deciding 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, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it.

So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
