Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Astute Appraisals, 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 a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
