Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Martin & Associates will ensure you get it right.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Others have an an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
