Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Dalton Appraisals and Auctions.

If you’re planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn’t cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it’s hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home’s market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of AL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, we’re human too, we understand its difficult 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.

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

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home’s interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home’s value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
