Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

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