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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
