Putting a house on the market in or near Denton County? Contact LHC Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for homeowners selling without an agent

An increasing amount of TX homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you 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:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
