Selling your home or property is one of the most important financial decisions you will be making in your life. Whether you're doing it for the first time or if you have sold other homes you have owned, you're going to need professional, objective advice on what the market is doing and where to price your home. No one wants to price property they are going to sell too low and leave money on the table. And no one wants to get hurt financially by pricing their property too high and having it sit on the market unsold for months, perhaps even years on end. We will provide you with a professional, objective, disinterested third party analysis of the local market and how your home fits in to that market. We will share information, gained from being in the appraisal business since 1992, on the marketability and value of your home. And we offer these same services to clients who are thinking of buying and are trying to determine if they are about to make a wise purchase on a home or property.
