Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. 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 an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
