Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from RWA Appraisals.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of WA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
