Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Glynn Michael Appraisals LLC

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 actually allowed these people 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 amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a proper listing price for your home.
