Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Anderson & Associates.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Anderson & Associates actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A skillful appraisal from Anderson & Associates can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
