Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Anderson Appraisals.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more ID homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
