Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Graham Enterprises

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

An overpriced property will not attract potential buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and are left with no offers.
