Getting an appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates before putting your Hammond home on the market saves you time and money.

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 pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of 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, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

An increasing amount of LA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal.

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get.
