Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc..

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
