Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Advantage Valley Appraisal, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.
