Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of NC homeowners are making the decision 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 objective opinions, it's very difficult 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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
