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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
