Always get an appraisal! I didn’t believe it. I figured the asking price would be reasonable. To be safe, I paid $325 to get a professional out and review the place. Glad I did. For 4962 Stonehenge Dr, Oakland Township (MLS #211090000 or MLS #31070206) the asking price was $140K.
But the appraised price was $120K!
But what do you get for your money? Just a number? No, quite a bit actually. I feel it was mony well spent. Check it out: Appraisal from 3/30/2012
