Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from A.M. Appraisal.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

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. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
