Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Colen & Associates.
If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 hard 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 to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
