Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from A.M. Appraisal

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's changing market.
