Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from LHC Appraisals.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of TX homeowners are deciding 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 for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on 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 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 waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
