Selling your home in or near Howard County? Contact Certified General Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of 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'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
