Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Anderson Appraisal, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell.

Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.
