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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is much more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment 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 gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
