Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from HAWKINS APPRAISAL.

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 practically impossible for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
