Getting an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Tuscaloosa County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of AL 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 skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised to discover the value of their home 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 thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
