Do you have to get your house appraised before you can put your house on the market?

Can I ask for how ever much money I want for my house?

Yes you can ask for whatever dollar amount you may want or think that the property is worth. But, a few words of wisdom, "don't put your sentimental, emotional or your own far out, unrealistic, this is what my home is worth dollar amount on the property you are trying to sell because at the end of the day, you might end up being your best and only customer".

You can ask whatever you want. It is your house. If your price is right, your house will get a good offers and interest from buyers. If not, it won't. No matter what you price your house, it will still have to appraise for the amount needed by the bank to make the loan unless your buyer is all cash.

Do not waste your money on an appraisal... go to a listing agent who knows your area/subdivision and get a comparable market analysis... be agressive on the price ... and find an agent you can work with not just someone who says what you want to hear!

Good luck...

What do you think Zillow's make me move is all about?

However, more realistically you can pay for an appraisal and feel that the price arrived at is fairly accurate and unbiased. The other option is in both sections of my blog. One on choosing an agent, and the other on doing a FSBO. The blog is attached to the link below.
