For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Feikert Appraisal Service will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.

We're veterans in helping customers just like you abolish unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

An appraisal report from Feikert Appraisal Service is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
