Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc..

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
