Brad Williams has been a certified appraiser in the Greensboro, NC area since 2011. He decided to follow in the family footsteps of his brother and uncle and become an appraiser after watching them work in the industry. For Brad, the most rewarding part of the appraisal profession is being the trusted expert providing analysis for the home purchase. Purchasing a home is the biggest investment most people will make in their lifetime, and he finds it extremely rewarding to provide analysis and support for the market value of this investment and help turn someone’s dream into a reality. Brad believes professionalism is multi-faceted in the appraisal industry, but the most important element is being on time. He ensures he is respectful of the client’s time and strives for efficiency when inspecting homes and completing his reports.
As an active appraiser in Greensboro, Brad stays current on market trends within his region. Currently, the Greensboro region is experiencing a seller’s market with very little inventory for buyers. Many new construction subdivisions are starting to pop up. Due to the low purchase inventory, buyers are choosing to build a new home to customize to their liking instead of having to make a rushed decision on an existing home that they may not be happy with in the end. The median price of a single-family home in the Greensboro area is $145,000. Home values have skyrocketed in the past year – in some areas, over 10%. The average days a home stays on the market in the area is 3 days, which is significantly shorter than the 16-day average in 2020.
