Getting an appraisal from Timely Appraisal Services before putting your North Texas home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market. At the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is offering to give you.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

More and more Texas homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sound selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide
It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal 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 gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
