Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Performance Appraisals Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

  • Be a very useful bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide
