Getting an appraisal from Accuracy Matters Appraisals before putting your South Fork home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer

  • Decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought.
