Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Allegiance Appraisals will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market. Once you break it all down, at the end of the day, your house is only worth what another person is going to pay.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more Texas homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance 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 an objective opinion, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at 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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate
People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than waiting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while your house waits for a buyer.
