Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact James Earp Appraisal Service

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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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