Getting an appraisal from CSRA Residential Appraisals before putting your Aiken home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; 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 difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

You're probably, as a homeowner, thinking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is willing to pay.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few South Carolina homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers 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 hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have originally gotten. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
