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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Anderson & Associates comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
