Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from John Fanning & Associates.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few TX homeowners are choosing 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 the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at 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:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
