Selling your home in or near Snohomish County? Contact Kent & Associates Appraisal and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
