What qualifications does a real estate appraiser have to meet?

A real estate appraiser must be licensed or certified through a state agency and is required to meet educational, experience, and examination requirements. Additionally, commercial appraisers have usually reached the level of State Certified General with over 2,500 hours of commercial work performed. Though not required, some appraisers may also have certain designations such as MAI or SRA.

How long does an appraisal take?

After an order has been placed and the inspection has been completed, a report can typically take five to seven business days before delivery. An appraisal consists of a combination of on site inspection of the physical property as well as extensive research of comparable sales in the immediate neighborhood. Depending on what the client is needing and the intended use of the appraisal itself, the appraiser may consider many different forms to provide property value. Each form requires an appraiser to have a different approach to providing the value and some take longer than others.A short form report usually takes between three to six hours to complete. Because most narrative reports provide a substantial amount of in-depth information about the subject property, they can take much longer than any other report.

If my appraisal comes out higher than my tax value, could my real estate taxes go up?

A tax assessor researches recently sold properties to determine the appraised value, they do not rely on the most recent appraisal nor do they have access to it. The appraiser is required to maintain confidentiality with the client, which would typically be you (if you undertook the appraisal) or the bank (in a mortgage related appraisal), not the local tax authorities. In the event you do experience an tax increase, a professional appraisal is a powerful tool in the process of contesting your property tax values.
