Getting an appraisal from C. Gaba Appraisals, LLC before putting your Mobile County 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 a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of AL homeowners are deciding 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, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
