Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Anderson & Associates actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a fair listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

But even if you are working with the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Anderson & Associates comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. Anderson & Associates appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
