Getting an appraisal from Edwards Appraisal Service LLC before putting your Lees Summit home on the market saves you time and money.

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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving 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.
