Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you have been working with an experienced agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

Anderson & Associates can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Anderson & Associates can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
