Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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 home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

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

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect 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 costs you'd pay.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
