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.

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 Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

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 house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
