Shreveport - Bossier City LA

Putting a house on the market in or near Shreveport or Bossier City? Contact Devereux Appraisal Company, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on putting your house on the market soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

You could be focused on how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. You see, the appraisal measures your home's market value. Technically, something is only going to sell for what another person is offering to pay.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of Louisiana homeowners are choosing 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, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, 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.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke
It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is quite a bit 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 originally thought. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of gathering dust 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.
