Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Timberline Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Timberline Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.
