Getting an appraisal from Anderson & Associates before putting your Vancouver home on the market saves you time and money.
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 in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.
This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
