Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from H.M. Hoffman & Company
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from H.M. Hoffman & Company actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell.

Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
