What is an Appraisal
read moreA home purchase is the largest transaction most people will ever encounter. Whether it's a primary residence, a second vacation property or an investment, purchasing real property is an involved transaction that requires multiple people working in concert to pull it all off. You're likely to be familiar with the parties having a role in the transaction. The most familiar face in the transaction is the real estate agent. Then, the lender provides the money required to fund the exchange. The title company makes sure that all details of the sale are completed and that a clear title passes from the seller to the buyer.

Listing your home
read moreEven if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement. That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps". Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold.

read moreThere are three ways to determine the value of anything, and each plays a part in property appraisal. The most widely-used and accepted in residential practice is the sales comparison approach. This approach bases its opinion of value on what similar properties in the vicinity have sold for recently, with appropriate adjustments for time, acreage, living area, amenities and so on. It is these adjustments where the expertise of the professional appraiser becomes necessary -- no computer can tell you how much or little to mark up for a fireplace without knowing the neighborhood or even talking to Realtors and recent buyers in the area about how important that amenity is in that particular location.

read moreHave you heard an appraiser use any of these terms? Did you just hear one of our appraisers use it and you came here to figure out what it meant? We don't mean to speak a foreign language, but any profession has its jargon. What res ipsa loquitur is to a lawyer and triple witching is to day traders, external obsolescence is to appraisers. When comparable properties have been identified, the appraiser makes adjustments to the Sales Price of each of the comparables to bring them into equivalency with the subject property, accounting for differences in location, construction quality, living area, acreage, frontage, amenities and the like.
