Getting an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals before putting your West Columbia home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more SC 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
