Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about 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 the true market value of your home.
