Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact True South Appraisals, LLC
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
