If you are planning to sell your home, it might be a wise decision to make a small investment in a professional appraisal. Unless you study real estate values on a day-to-day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it can be difficult for you to get a handle on current real estate values.

We aren’t talking about how much you have invested in your home, how much you paid for it, or how much you want for it; We’re talking about the true market value of your home, which can really pay off for you in the long run!

SELLING YOUR HOME 'FSBO':
More and more homeowners today are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. Selling your home by this method can end up saving you a potentially "hefty" commission (industry average is 5-7% of the home’s selling price). Plus, many FSBO sellers feel that they have more control in the process of selling their home since they are in essence, making all the rules. But selling a home on your own requires a great deal of "homework" if you're going to do it right. One piece of advice that is consistently given by experts when selling your home FSBO is "Do NOT 'Overprice' Your Home!" It can be very difficult to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser's evaluation will be unquestionably objective; thus telling you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.
