Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from A & B Tax Service

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from A & B Tax Service actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.
