Selling your home in or near Pender County? Contact C. Nathan King & Associates Real Estate Appraisers and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. You see, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home. Something is only going to sell for the price another person is going to pay.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of North Carolina homeowners are making the decision 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 the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through
It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than sitting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your home sits on the market.
