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!
