Selling your home in or near Cumberland County? Contact Loveland Properties and Appraisal and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home. A home is only worth what another person is going to pay.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few North Carolina homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your house waits for a buyer.
