Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold.

Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home.
