Putting a house on the market in or near Snohomish County? Contact Kent & Associates Appraisal 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's worth the money 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 understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
