At an open house this weekend, I came across a couple of neighbors who were curious about their home value.  Knowing your value and knowing what to do with your value will make a difference.  

1. Sell your home - By knowing your value, you can make better decisions on selling your home

2. Start a business - Having value in your home, you can get a line of credit and start the business you've always dream about  

3. Use to be "underwater" - Some homeowners were underwater or owed more than what their home is worth.  Home values has gone up and some homeowner find themselves break even or even on the upside now due to today's real estate economy. 

4. Refinance - this is important too.  Don't be fool by others telling you, you can't refinance because you don't have equity in your home.  If you are in a higher interest rate, by knowing your value of your home - REFINANCE may save you hundreds of dollars a month.
