An appraisal is a tool and an opinion like anything else, but fixed to that moment in time. It is not a guarantee that a home will sell for that amount. What if, 3 days after the appraisal is complete, 2 more comparable homes sold within the radius of the subject home that had a significantly different (higher or lower) price than the previous comps? I had a listing where the appraisal said was valued at $317,000, we priced it right around that price... but it sold a year later for significantly less than that after we had to reduce the price. Even a CMA is only good for a snapshot of that moment in time - it's a starting point, not the ending point.

I disagree that an appraisal is the best way to ascertain value. The reality is appraiser's don't take into account intangible influences that can effect market value.

For example, they don't account for the fact that in an appreciating market- like the one we're in now- you would likely be leaving money on the table if you sold for what an appraiser told you your house was worth because you could have likely pushed price a little based on the lack of inventory and other factors an appraiser doesn't account for.

The best way to get an ACCURATE price on your home is to use a CERTIFIED APPRAISER. Contact me if you need an appraisers opinion. I am not only a broker, but also an appraiser for almost 10 years.

The best way to get the most accurate selling value estimate would be to call a local Realtor near your property and discuss it in person or show it to them.
Some people like to enter it into Zillow.com or one of the other AVM sites and see what pops out.i
