Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
