Some home owners think their home is worth more than it would appraise for and others think it is worth less. Right now your home may be worth more than you think at least according to a study by Quicken Loans where home owner perception of price is compared with appraiser opinions. They call it the HPPI. On average appraisers opinions are running higher than homeowner opinions.
As a real estate agent I am always interested in home values and pricing. One of the hardest parts of my job is helping home owners decide what price to list their home for.
