WHAT'S THE APPRAISAL PROCESS?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What if there aren’t enough recent comparables in my neighborhood?
The absence of recently purchased comparable properties brings about setback for both a home appraiser and mortgage company. In such cases appraisers can opt to include older comparable sales that may not be reflective of current market forces, use farther away comparables in communities that may not be fully similar, or make greater adjustments to what is available by comparing homes that are less similar. Each are perfectly defensible approaches to a absence of comparables, and the appraisal form even contains an adjustment line for age of sale.
How long is an appraisal good for?
The effective date of an appraisal can be found near the beginning of the report and designates the date which the opinion of value is to apply to. Exactly how long your conclusion of value will remain reliable depends on the market forces. Within most loan guidelines appraisals don’t have a defined expiration time; however, most banks desire comparables that are no more than 6 months, an appraisal should be no more than 24 weeks old. Most home appraisers and banks agree three months is the limit of time that an appraisal presents a reliable value, known as the “term of validity.”
What type of special training or education is required of an appraiser?
Many states require all home property appraisers to be, at a minimum, state licensed or state certified and have fulfilled rigorous education and experience requirements and must adhere to strict industry guidelines and a professional code of ethics as promoted by the Appraisal Foundation. All home appraisers must log over 2,000 hours of appraisal assignments under a sponsor before they are eligible for licensure. Finally, house appraisers must be able to demonstrate mastery in not just valuation but in their geographic area.
