Putting a house on the market in or near Mobile County? Contact C. Gaba 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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
