Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Thornton Appraisal Services.
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Thornton Appraisal Services actually allowed these sellers 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home
Thornton Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
