Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Hill Appraisal Associates, LLC

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

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 from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home in today's changing market.

This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you've hired an accomplished agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.
