Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is my home’s value determined?

    An appraiser will visit your home to view the property, take measurements, and collect visual data. The information collected, along with data from the city or county, and industry and costing databases, is used along with recent sales of similar properties to establish the appraised value.

  • Where do Appraisers get their information?

    Appraisers use a wide variety of sources, including the homeowner, the local Multiple Listing Service, city or county databases, and the appraiser's own files.

  • How is an appraisal different from a real estate agent’s Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)?

    Appraisers factor in general condition, location and construction quality into their appraised value. They use well documented data from reliable sources to analyze the property and calculate an accurate value, and they will include supporting documents in their appraisal report. A CMA is often an estimate loosely based on trends and more often on active listings than recent actual sales, even though sales prices are often different from the listing price. In addition the CMA value is intended for listing purposes and the listing value varies by real estate agent depending on how they intend to market your home, whereas the appraised value is what the appraiser feels the home would actually sell for in the current market. Keep in mind as well that the average real estate agent will sell 10 - 15 homes per year whereas we appraise 10 - 15 homes per week. The appraisal is created by a qualified professional who has made a career out of valuing properties.

  • How long does an appraisal take?

    The physical viewing of the property typically takes an average of half an hour and depends on the home itself. For the majority of residential properties the report can then be delivered the next business day.

  • Do I have to be at the appraisal viewing?

    Although it is recommended, the homeowner does not have to be present at time of viewing as long as the appraiser has access to the home. If you are not present at the appointment, the appraiser may still have some questions for you to answer via phone or email.

  • How should I prepare for my home’s appraisal?

    The entire exterior of your home should be accessible for viewing and measuring. The interior should be tidy enough that all areas of the home are accessible for viewing and to take photos for the report. Try to be available to answer any questions the appraiser may have about the property, as well as any recent improvements you may have made. It is also helpful to have your most recent Real Property Report and Tax Assessment available, as well as any floor plans, or purchase agreements if applicable.
