Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc..

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

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
