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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
