Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Campbell and Cress Appraisal Service, LLC.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed.
