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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Timberline Appraisals actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from Timberline Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Timberline Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself 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?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
