Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services will ensure you get it right.
If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible 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 the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
