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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 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 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both 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 entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
