Putting a house on the market in or near Lexington County? Contact A. M. Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

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

An increasing amount of SC homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard 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 realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated 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 instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
