Getting an appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC before putting your Allegheny County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
