Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Central States Appraisal Company.
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 in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.
We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
