Putting a house on the market in or near Fayette County? Contact Gray Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
