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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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 to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an exaggerated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
