Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Timely Appraisal Services
A lot of sellers are shocked 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 actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers.
