If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
