Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Independent Valuation Services will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
