Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from John DeWitt Residential Appraiser.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.
While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
