Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel...

A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Benchmark Appraising, LLC. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the wisest decisions.
