Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
