Getting an appraisal from Abandy & Associates Appraisal Services before putting your San Bernardino County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
