Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Terry Higgins Appraisals.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

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

Selling on your own?

More and more GA homeowners are making the decision 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 for the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that 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 to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, 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 rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
