If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
