Getting an appraisal from Anderson & Associates before putting your Clark County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

More and more WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
