Getting an appraisal from Certified Residential Inc before putting your Lancaster home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
