Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from CAA Real Property Services, Inc..

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

It's tempting to want to base your home's value on how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home. After all, a home is only worth what another person is going to pay.

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have originally banked. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression of their home's value, and by getting an appraisal it gave them the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price for their home - allowing them to quickly sell it - instead of gathering dust on the market for months.
