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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will entice potential buyers. An expert appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
