Getting an appraisal from Kent & Associates Appraisal before putting your Snohomish County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

Quite a few WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown 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 by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
