Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate 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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home.

Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home.
