Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Saxton Appraisals, Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective.

Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
