Selling your home in or near San Diego County? Contact Chris Circuit and make sure you're setting the price right.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.
This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
