Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services will ensure you get it 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 in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get 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?

More and more TX homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
