Thinking of selling? There are markets that have changed over the last 6-12 months & you don't want to overprice (or underprice) your property.
Thinking of buying? You don't want to overpay unless you plan on staying at that location for 10, 20 or 30 years. Family situations may change for any number of reasons.
You may want to consider an unbiased opinion by a Licensed Appraiser? They cannot advocate for or represent the Buyer or Seller.
They MUST remain objective!
