Selling your home in or near Lexington County? Contact A. M. Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays 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 get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few SC homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help 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 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting 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.
