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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

Binder and Associates (360) 573-8114 can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I 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. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
