If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
