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 makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
