Getting an appraisal from Anderson & Associates before putting your Vancouver 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 pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard 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 for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

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

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
