Getting an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service before putting your Raleigh home on the market saves you time and money.
If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional 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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.
We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment 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. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
