Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Anderson & Associates.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally.
