Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Russell Appraisal Service.

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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard 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 how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few TX homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be 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.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
