Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.
