And how does this statement differ from what I said?

Remember, the initial comment that sparked this thread had to do with appraised value (i.e.: the bank's assessment) versus fair market value (i.e.: what is someone willing to pay for my house)?

Bottomline - if you want to know FMV, get a realtor that KNOWs your area and specializes in the type of home you're selling in order to get top-dollar.
