Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few WA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
