Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from All City Appraisal.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally.
