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

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 pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more WA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of 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.

Get a comprehensive appraisal before listing

You might have a highly skilled agent but it's definitely a good idea to have an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. And that's where Anderson & Associates comes in. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal that will let you and your agent have a precise summarizing of your home's characteristics and a detailed breakdown of the most recent and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
