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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause sales to go up in smoke
