Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A qualified appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause negotiations to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
