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. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few 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, quickly and for the best price, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating 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 delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
