Let Blue Star Appraisals Help Give You Confidence in Your Investment Decisions 

Even if you are working with a realtor - and the ones we work with are all highly competent and very good at their jobs - looking at a property through the well-trained eyes of an unbiased third party (whose payment is not contingent on the outcome) can be the difference between investment success and financial failure.

Blue Star Appraisals of Dallas can help you make the right investment decisions.  Of course, the best way to ascertain the correct value on which to base an offer is to order a full appraisal, but sometimes you just need someone to be your eyes and do the leg work.  Some of our other fee services include:

  • Visual evaluation of the property and surroundings with photographic documentation
  • Written description of amenities, condition and potential issues
  • Comparable sales data with or without appraiser analysis
  • On-site assistance for out-of-town investors to provide access for inspections and workers
  • Electronic delivery, usually within 24 hours of request of services

If you are investing in residential real estate for the first time, or even if you're already a successful investor - good for you, your timing couldn't be better!  With foreclosures up, demand down and prices dropping, now is a great time to invest in real estate.

According to Homevestor, the We Buy Ugly Houses folks, Dallas was the top city for real estate investing in the 2nd quarter of 2008 (The Real Estate Bloggers, July 2008). The same source (in 11/2008) named Dallas/Fort Worth at the end of their list of "Top 15 Cities Where You Will Make Money in Real Estate in 2 Years."

Our appraisers have over a decade's worth of experience and data analysis in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Put our expertise to work for you as you make one of the most important financial decisions of your life.  Call Blue Star Appraisals today, at (972) 387-8163, or email us to learn more about our services for investors.
