Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114

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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your local area. 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're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will intrigue potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
