You made the right decision! Also, what Buyers and Sellers do not understand is, an agent could make the appraisal go in the wrong direction when you get involved...the standard appraisal reply is: they could use another home and yours will go down in value...they gotcha no matter what.

Good Luck!!!

LM says: Linda, I agree with you. The biggest thing that was hanging over me was the fact that I did not know what other foreclosures or distressed sales there were in the pipeline.
