Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
