Getting an appraisal from Cheaney Appraisal Service before putting your Evansville home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

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