Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

Quite a few TX homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
