Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from .

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house.
