Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
