For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Need to remove PMI?

We are qualified in helping homeowners just like you rid yourselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
