Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from TJ appraisals will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home in Beaver, Allegheny, Mercer or Lawrence County, then you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of an appraisal as purely an expense; it's worth every penny in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value. Something is only worth what another person is willing to give you.
