Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand real estate market forces.
This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months.
