Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Anderson & Associates

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Anderson & Associates comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A polished appraisal from Anderson & Associates can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Anderson & Associates is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Anderson & Associates will help homeowners like you make the decisions.
