Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of 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 won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.Contact us

Improvements to add value
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
