Putting a house on the market in or near El Paso County? Contact John's Appraisal Service (915) 595-2340 and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

You're probably, as a homeowner, thinking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market. After all, a home is only worth what another person is willing to give you.

Selling on your own?

More and more 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 to get the most you can, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is much more than they thought. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order 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 causes buyers to back off, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
