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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about 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.
