Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's adapting 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 sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A skillful appraisal from Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
