If it is for a refinance, start with your lender and have "their" appraiser do it. &nbsp;If you are thinking of selling, contact several Realtors or better yet, Brokers, to give you not only their opinion of value but a complete marketing plan. &nbsp;DO NOT just go with the agent/broker that provides the highest price if they can't back it up!<br/><br/>Home are not a commodity so you don't just take $X per sq. ft. and multiply the size!<br/><br/>I teach Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR) for the National Association of Realtors and was shocked at how many answers we got even as instructors to the same sample problem!
