Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us today
