Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.
