Getting an appraisal from LHC Appraisals before putting your Denton County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more TX homeowners are deciding 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 the best price, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion of their home's value, 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 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
