Selling your home in or near Allegheny County? Contact Nordquist Appraisal LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

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