Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Aurora Appraisal Services
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell.
