If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
