Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Joseph Mier & Associates will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
