Selling your home in or near Porter County? Contact Barrasas Real Estate 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 studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
