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 going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
