Mary Thompson - Lanier Appraisal Service  Reviews


Our Specialties & Experience Include:

Lake Lanier, Golf Course,  Private Party Appraisal Services. We work with Buyers and Sellers regularly who order their own appraisals for peace of mind before placing their home on the market or before placing an offer on a home.   Pre-Listing or Listing Appraisals are worth their weight in Gold and should be included as part of the Home Selling Preparation Process.

A Pre-Listing Appraisal is just as  important as updating your home with new paint, carpet, appliances, etc. before you put it on the market.

The best money you can spend as a Seller is to Get a PreListing Appraisal. Both for negotiations and ammunition, should the buyers lender have an appraisal that you do not agree with!

As a BUYER it is also very WISE to get an appraisal BEFORE you make an offer on any home! Do NOT overpay for that home! Especially CASH buyers, where no loan is involved, get an appraisal first!


Courthouse Records are typically WRONG and Square Footage has a direct impact on value! Contact us today about having a Sketch done on your home. You will be glad you did! Here are some Samples of  Sketches that we can do for you!
