Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from My Appraisal Office LLC.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market. At the end of the day, your house is only going to sell for the price another person is going to give you.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few Washington homeowners are making the decision 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, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get an objective opinion, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at your 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Be a very useful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through
It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly - rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
