Putting a house on the market in or near Allegheny County? Contact Nordquist Appraisal LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
