Home Sellers Services

Getting an appraisal from Fortiz Appraisal Services before putting your 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult 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 the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more TX homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to take an objective look at 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, but a professional appraisal can also:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer

  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out

  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing

  • Prevent the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So, by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and effort.
