Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading 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.
