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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's changing 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 property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you have hired the most accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will entice potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can:

  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect.
