Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc..

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 in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
