Putting a house on the market in or near Fresno County? Contact Associates Appraisal Group and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
