Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money 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 fully grasp local real estate values.

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, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more SC homeowners are making the decision 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, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
