Putting a house on the market in or near Iredell County? Contact Campbell and Cress Appraisal Service, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and 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 hard for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
