If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
