For a seller, figuring out the right price tag for your home could make or break the speed of your sale. For a buyer, offering too low can kill a deal before it even begins. When it comes to pricing, something that many buyers and sellers struggle to understand is the difference between the appraised value of their home vs market value.

This value is based on a variety of data, gathered by a professional appraiser, trained to provide the estimated value of a home.” The appraised value is based on comparable sales, the condition of the property, and several other factors.
“The market value will vary more than your appraised value. This is because unlike the appraised value, buyers have influence over the market value of a property. Why? Because ultimately, a property is only worth what someone will pay for it.
