Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Summit Appraisal, Inc. will ensure you get it right.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run!

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
