Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Pierce Appraisal will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
