A local real estate professional can give you a CMA for free.  If you have a legal situation ie: divorce or estate you may need to pay for an apprasial.

An appraisal is a snapshot in time of the homes value. It is a more formal review of your homes value than a market analysis, that is often done by a real estate agent. Both have their place, depending on your needs.

If you are tracking your homes value just out of curiosity, start calculating the dollar per sq. ft. living area from similar homes in your neighborhood by looking at the flyers or online to get a rough idea of values and trends in your neighborhood.

If you require a more formal valuation, it would be a good time to contact a professional.

Best regards,

Arpad

If you're interested in a value for yourself, contact a Realtor, they will give you an evaluation for free. If you hire an appraiser, it will cost you money.

Could I ask why you need an appraisal?  If it is for financial/estate planning or divorce, etc, you can contact an appraiser yourself and like Sharon says, get a recommendation from a Mortgage person or Realtor.  If you are looking to plan to sell the home, an appraisal isn't necessary and you should have a Realtor (or two) give you a Market analysis, which will be more accurate for that purpose.  If you are re-financing, your Bank will do an appraisal if necessary and will not accept yours anyway.

Call a professional appraiser, look in the yellow pages, or ask a realtor for a recommendation or your loan officer, make sure they are licensed. You can also talk to a realtor and ask that they give you a comparative market analysis, if you are considering putting your home on the market. Hope that helps you.
