Putting a house on the market in or near Clark County? Contact Allen Appraisal & Consulting, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

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 you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

You, as a homeowner, might be thinking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. You see, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. After all, a home is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few Washington 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser. You need an objective opinion, it's very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sound asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate
Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have originally gotten. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Asking too much for a home causes buyers to back off, which means no offers and no closing, wasting your valuable time and draining your resources while you're in Real Estate "limbo".
