Getting an appraisal from Collard Appraisal Group, Inc. before putting your Los Angeles County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is a great deal more than they thought.
