Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Texas Real Estate Office
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home 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. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.Contact us today
Working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

Improvements to add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Texas Real Estate Office appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
