Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Passage Appraisal, LLC 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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
