Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from VanderWaal Appraisal Group.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.
We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
