Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Anderson & Associates will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
