Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell.

Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
