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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more AL 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
