If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

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