Putting a house on the market in or near Tuscaloosa County? Contact Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more AL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion 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 allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
