Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Allatoona Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.
With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.Contact us
