Putting a house on the market in or near Snohomish County? Contact Kent & Associates Appraisal and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, 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 the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

More and more WA 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 to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be 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 astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
