Putting a house on the market in or near Bexar County? Contact C. L. Rogers & Associates and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

More and more TX 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 to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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 asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting 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

Get a comprehensive appraisal before listing

You might have a very skilled agent but it's definitely a good idea to have an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. Let C. L. Rogers & Associates help. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a precise description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
