Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Mannion Appraisals will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
