New Construction or Major Renovations
Are you planning to built a new home or undertaking major renovations on your current home but you are not sure if the investment will result in the desired return?

If you are thinking of listing your property privately but would rather not involve a real estate agent, an unbiased and objective appraisal report will tell you what the market in your neighbourhood is doing, what comparable properties have sold for, how your property compares to neighbouring properties, and may be also a useful tool in the sale negotiations.
