Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

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

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

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will interest buyers. A professional appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
