Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Timberline Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Timberline Appraisals comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will appeal to potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Timberline Appraisals can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

Timberline Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
