Getting an appraisal from Alexander Appraisal Services before putting your Jefferson County home on the market saves you time and money.
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 studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.
This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
