Getting an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. before putting your Tuscaloosa County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
