Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Cheaney Appraisal Service.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Cheaney Appraisal Service actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.
