You can even go on-line and search for a real estate office in that area and call and ask for an agent that works Oakwood. Ask how many properties they have listed or sold in that area, then ask for references. An agent knows good questions to ask, and can aid in referring you to a good agent, plus agents are always networking and monitoring referral satisfaction. Plus, there is a large real estate company that was founded in Texas, not far from Oakwood, that may be able to assist your real estate needs in Texas.

Mary gave some good advice too, that an agent will save you some money by giving you a Comparable Market Analysis, but if you are more comfortable with an apraisal then do what you feel meets your needs. All the best to you..

You can hire an appraiser to do a real estate appraisal as of the date of death OR you can hire a real estate sales person to do an estimation of value for the home as of the date of death. Often the latter will do and will be less expensive. The sooner this is done, the better - it will be easier and more accurate. Make sure that whomever you hire is familiar with Oakwood, and if not a resident there, lives within 10 miles or so of it.

Best of luck to you!

You can have it appraised by an appraisal company, or you can call a Realtor and have them do a MVA on the property.
