Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Rickman Valuations, LLC.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Rickman Valuations, LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.
