Getting an appraisal from Alford & Associates before putting your Mecklenburg County home on the market saves you time and money.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money 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 their local real estate market.
We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?
An increasing amount of NC 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, you need a professional appraisal. You need 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 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order 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, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
Get a professional value opinion before listing
Even if you're working with a very skillful agent, it's in your best interest to have an unbiased second opinion of your home's value to finalizing a listing agreement. Let Alford & Associates help. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate writeup of your home's characteristics and a detailed analysis of the newest and similar comparable sales or as they're commonly called, "comps".
