Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Stallings & Associates will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
