Selling your home in or near Travis County? Contact Russell Appraisal Service 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 in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few TX homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very difficult 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
