Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Campbell and Cress Appraisal Service, LLC will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money 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 get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
