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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home 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. Others have an 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 don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a true listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sales houses 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 logical move.

But even if you are working with the most accomplished real estate 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 Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
