Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

But even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 comes in! We'll perform 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".

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

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fizzle
  • 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 equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can 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 step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
