How do find the value of my business?

A serious buyer approuched me about buying my real estate that has two buildings on two acres and is currently doing business. Should I just price it high or get a professional appraisal?

Eric, I'd seriously recommend that you get an appraisal by someone who is certified in appraising both businesses & real estate. Having a good concrete understanding of what your business is worth will significantly improve the odds of you getting a fair price for your assets.
