Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an 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 an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
