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 these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired 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'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them 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.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
