Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
