Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Pemberley Appraisal will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; 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 practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home. A home is only going to sell for what another person is willing to give you.
