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

If you're planning on putting your house on the market soon, an appraisal is a step in the right direction. 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home. Technically, something is only worth the price another person is willing to pay.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

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 skilled appraiser. You need an objective opinion, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to flop
People are surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of sitting on the market for months. Asking too much for a home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
