Putting a house on the market in or near Brazoria County? Contact Elite Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few TX homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
