Selling your home in or near Mobile County? Contact C. Gaba Appraisals, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of AL homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. 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 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 astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. 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. 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 gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
