Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Lighthouse Appraisal Service.
If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.
