Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Anderson & Associates will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking 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.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of WA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
