Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Forward Appraisals.
Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
