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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays 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 understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
