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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. 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 practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of TX homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you 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:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining 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 problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting 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
