WHAT'S THE APPRAISAL PROCESS?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can real estate agents speak with the appraiser?
Absolutely! Appraisal code of conduct enable Realtors and other parties with involvement in the real estate transaction, to talk an appraiser and provide additional property information, including a copy of the sales agreement. If the Realtor is the party who engaged the appraiser then they are allowed to discuss any and all details with respects to the appraisal process.
CMA vs. home appraisals
Honestly, it's kiwis to watermelons. A comparative market analysis depends heavily on market trends to estimate value. Even though appraisals also use comparable sales, the breadth of research placed into each home and subsequent adjustments are much more thorough than a comparative market analysis. Acreage and building prices are as well paramount within an appraisal. For concluding a rational range or ball park figure, comparative market analyses are ok. But if you need a more thorough and likely reasonable value, then you need an appraisal. The most influential of all these ingredients is the party writing the report. Any real estate agent can create a CMA without having expertise within the market or home valuation overall. Appraisers conversely are bound by ethics guidelines that obligate them to have market competence or disclose the the shortcoming. Realtors can as well be tempted to estimate a property value that they feel meets the homeowners value target in order to gain a listing. Appraiser’s have no concern in the market value of the home since they are compensated with a flat fee.
How is a home appraisal different than a house inspection?
An appraiser’s inspection of the home is simply for the basis of comparison of other houses, where an inspection is the basis for the absolute condition of all aspects of that particular home. The appraiser examines the perimeter of the home to get a general idea of the outside condition. They are usually looking for obvious issues with the roofing, siding, and foundation as well as a general assessment of inside conditions in relation to houses in the local market area. Appraisers will make adjustments in the comparable sales grid within the appraisal to prove similarity or dissimilarity between the Subject and the comparable property. Knowing the condition and quality of construction of the Subject property helps home appraisers when choosing the most appropriate comparable houses. It is wise to seek opinion from various experts in the housing industry throughout the appraisal process.
