Selling your home in or near Travis County? Contact Russell Appraisal Service and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
