Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services.

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a sharp listing price for your home.
