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 planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
