The appraisers I generally use oversee the R&amp;G made over the state of GA.<br/>&nbsp; What is your main objective after you get the value of your home backed up w/ a supporting set of documents? &nbsp;Either way, make sure you use someone that knows the area. &nbsp;Too many times the value falls short due to an "outsider" even other states, does an appraisal/CMA in an area they are not familiar with.<br/><br/>Thank You,<br/>Kevin Stocks -Realtor Thu, 14 Nov 2013 23:23:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-you-folks-to-publish-an-informed-estimate-of-the-value-of-my-condo-unit-in-Atlanta/513218/ 2013-11-14T23:23:00Z A realtor can provide you ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-you-folks-to-publish-an-informed-estimate-of-the-value-of-my-condo-unit-in-Atlanta/513218/ A realtor can provide you with a CMA (comparative market analysis) on your home and make adjustments for the specific upgrades you are talking about. &nbsp;That will give you a ballpark figure of the actual value. &nbsp;<br/><br/>You could also hire an appraiser to come in and do an appraisal. &nbsp;This is a much more detailed version of the CMA and will give you a specific price value of your home.&nbsp;<br/><br/>If you are looking to refinance, the mortgage company will get an appraisal on the property. &nbsp;They will not look at Zestimates or any other valuations on any website. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Hope this helps Judge and thank you for your service to the community!

We can see if the improvements on your home&nbsp;brought your value up. In your case an appraisal is very beneficial because you'll have the proper amount to list your condo, if you're looking to sell. If you aren't looking to&nbsp;sell.&nbsp;We specialize in condominiums in Atlanta so feel free to call us at&nbsp;[Phone removed by Zillow moderator.
