There are a couple advantages with getting your home formally appraised by a licensed professional. This will give you a realistic snapshot of what you can expect to get from the sale of your home on that day. It may also shed light on any potential repairs/fixes that will be necessary in order for a buyer to obtain a loan and purchase the home.
The disadvantages of getting your home formally appraised first will be the loss of the upfront money paid for the appraisal, and keep in mind our market is ever-changing so if you wait too long before placing your home on the market that appraised value may not be realistic.
