Getting an appraisal from TLM Appraisal Services before putting your Orlando home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a 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 the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected.
