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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
