Most Realtors will do a market evaluation for free. An agent needs to come over, view your property so they can assess the condition, upgrades, etc - By doing that and running the recent market comparables, a good agent will be able to give you an accurate assessment of your home's worth.
Is your house being appraised for a refiance? If so you may want to contact a Realtor to run some comps and provide them with your properties upgrades, etc... so that they can do a comparable market analysis ( CMA), it's not an appraisal that the bank would do but it will give you a very good idea of market value.
If you are looking to find the value in order to sell your home a Realtor can help you by completing a CMA. When you sell your home it's good to know what your home is worth in order to price it right, however you also need to consider your marketing strategy and your competition. Contact a Realtor and start working on a creating a selling plan so that you can get the most money for your home.

Have an experienced agent give you a value assessment for your property. Make sure it is comprehensive as to the size and condition of your home and include variables for your lot, pool if any, upgrades in your home and market conditions.

Different factors affect the correct value of your home. Market conditions, inventory, Foreclosures, Short Sales, Comparables, condition of the property, square footage, type of property, zoning. I see you are close to my office, I would love to do an analysis of your home.

A good rule of thumb is to compare it to other homes within 6-12 blocks of your home that are similar. What did they sell for in the past 30-60 days? How does your home compare to theirs using such items as square footage, acreage, age of windows, roof, furnace, AC, water heater and other miscellaneous updates.
Hope that helps.
