Getting an appraisal from Anderson & Associates before putting your Vancouver 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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be very 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
