For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Scott Appraisal Co. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective.

The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
