If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
