Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value report than yours.
