Compare the 2 reports identify where sq. ft. left off . Many assume the screened porch counts, must be anything under the HVAC

Not reviewing difference take the appraised sq ft divide by the appraised value to come up with difference between the two

The only appraisal that can be used needs to be six(6) months or less. Don't get your hopes up too much..stay conservative with the numbers...ie, expect the value to hopefully be the same and not too much less.

Follow Anna's advice..find a Realtor to help you first...they can best determine actual solds that are closer to what your place is currrently worth without you putting out $300 to $500 to hire an appraiser.

Keep in mind the appraisal done two years ago has no baring on today's market--to get an idea of today's market, why not contact any realty office(s) and ask for comps-- recently closed similar properties in the immediate area--after reviewing the data you can make a determination--the information is free-- or you may wish to pay and hire a professional appraiser.
