Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, 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 have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
