Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Homestead Appraisals, Ltd..
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.
We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
