Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Compass Appraisals.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.
This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
