I agree - get it appraised before listing it. I also sometimes recommend getting it inspected before listing it or trying to sell, because it gives buyers some extra confidence (and you too). We have more info from an inspector we use on our blog: [Hotlink removed by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy for information.]

The very best thing to do is have it appraised before you list your home.Someone looking at your home and making an offer can only borrow the appraised amount.

The best thing to do is to contact a few different agents and they should be able to give you a good idea of what your property is worth.  They should look at what is currently on the market and what has sold recently.  This is of course if you are planning on listing the property.  If you need a value for some other legal purpose then you may need to hire a licensed appraiser who will do an even more in depth analysis of your property for what ever purpose you need.

The true value of a home is whatever a buyer is willing to pay for it. To get an accurate price for your home you should contact a few local agents. They can compare your property to other similar properties for sale now and that have recently sold in the area for a comparative market analysis.
