Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc.

If you're planning on putting your house on the market soon, an appraisal is a step in the right direction. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

You could be thinking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value. After all, a home is only going to sell for what another person is willing to pay.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of Washington homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need an objective opinion, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop
People are surprised to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment of their home's value, and an appraisal gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home in order for it to sell quickly - instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
