Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Barnes Appraisal Company.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
