Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Bain & Associates, Inc..

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult 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, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few Texas homeowners are making the decision 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 top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful negotiating 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 eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high 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
