Putting a house on the market in or near Polk County? Contact Taylor and Associates Appraisal Services, LLC. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
