Getting an appraisal from B & B Valuations, LLC before putting your Katy home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
