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 actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown dilemmas that cause negotiations to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
