Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services actually allowed these people 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 will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a skillful listing price for your home.
