If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking 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 your home's market value.
