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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
