Getting an appraisal from Anderson Appraisals before putting your Kootenai County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
