What to Expect
The person allowing us to gain access to the property will be contacted to set up an appointment within 48 hours of receiving the appraisal order. An appraiser's duty is to inspect the property being appraised to assess the true overall condition of the property. At the time of inspection the appraiser must actually note the quality of construction, bedrooms and bath count, the specific location, on-site improvements and so on, to ensure that they really exist and are in marketable condition. The inspection often includes a sketch of the property, site map, location map in relationship to the sales and listings, interior/exterior photographs and any type of functional or external obsolescence noted. Most importantly, the appraiser looks for any obvious features - or defects - that would affect the value of the home.
Our appraisers are professionally qualified and pursue continuing education in the field of real estate appraisal. They take the utmost pride in their work and can be counted on to provide the highest level of professional service.
