Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Brazos Valley Appraisals
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.Contact us
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.
Even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.
That's where Brazos Valley Appraisals comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
An expert appraisal from Brazos Valley Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
