Putting a house on the market in or near Mobile County? Contact C. Gaba Appraisals, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more AL homeowners are choosing 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to be objective about 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 realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of hidden 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 by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, 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 instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
