For accurate information, you need an in-person valuation with someone who knows the local market. You need someone who will actually walk through your home with you, and take the time to understand what you love about your home, updates that you have done over the years, how your home compares to other recently sold homes in your area as well as other details that make it a wonderful place to live. Although technology has taken off over the last decade with video and 3D virtual tours, there is still no better way to get the true feeling of a home without seeing, smelling, and touching it in person.

I would love to give you all of the information you need to help you make an educated and smart decision that will help you get top dollar when you decide to sell.
