Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services will ensure you get it right.
If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand 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. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
