Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
