Value can mean more than one thing.  In real estate sales, it's what a qualified buyer will pay or a willing seller will sell.

To get an estimate, check comparable sales in the area, adjusting for amenities, square footage, condition, etc.

You can also get a realtor (or two)  to give you a market analysis

An apprasier can be hired; but this is expensive.

Since assessed value estimates and other auto-estimates can be extremely unreliable in this market, the best way to get an estimate is through a couple of local agents. You should get at least 2 estimates. Call any real estate office and talk with an agent. If you feel confortable on the phone with that agent, invite that agent over to give you an estimate of the value. The most important things to look at are recent accepted offers, current competition including how long they have been on the market, and lastly recent sales. Recent sales used to be the most important, but today I would put more value on current market conditions. Most agents will give you this information for free for the opportunity to meet you and give you further assistance in marketing your property.
