Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Anderson Appraisals.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

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

And that's where Anderson Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to fold
