Selling your home in or near Dane County? Contact Smith Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the price right.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.
We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
