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

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 a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

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 the true market value of your home.
