Getting an appraisal from before putting your home on the market saves you time and money.

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

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
