Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services actually allowed these people 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
Walker Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
