Selling your home in or near Polk County? Contact Gregory James Company, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.
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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
