Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from JTH Appraisals.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp 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 for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
