Getting an appraisal from Valuation Group VT before putting your shelburne home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving 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.
