Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area.

Improvements that add value to your home
