Selling your home in or near Lexington County? Contact A. M. Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand 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 need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
