Selling your home in or near Geneva County? Contact ALSouth Appraisal Services LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get out of it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. At the end of the day, your house is only worth the price another person is going to give you.

Selling on your own?

More and more Alabama homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

Even if you're working with a very skilled agent, it's definitely a good idea to have an unbiased second opinion of value prior to signing a listing contract. And that's where ALSouth Appraisal Services LLC comes in. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal that will let you and your agent have a definitive summarizing of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
