Putting a house on the market in or near New Haven County? Contact Crossroads Appraisals 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 pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
