Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Southern Valuation Services, Inc.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
In today's fluctuating market, hiring a certified appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home.Contact us

Home improvements that add value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
