Getting an appraisal from Lakeland Appraisal before putting your Highland home on the market saves you time and money.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider 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 understand the nuances of their local real estate market.
We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?
More and more MI homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.
Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an overestimated impression of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
