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 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.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
