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 a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.
