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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's 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 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 in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when 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 process.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also 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 can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. A skillful appraisal from Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected disputes that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen 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 your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
