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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. 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 an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few AL 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it can be very 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial 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
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out 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 several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, 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 instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
