Getting an appraisal from Benchmark Appraising, LLC before putting your Kernersville home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. After all, a home is only going to sell for what another person is going to pay.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few 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 qualified appraiser. You need an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you 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 bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide
People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
