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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious 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 the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.
