Getting an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service before putting your Raleigh home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
