An appraisal is a professional appraiser’s opinion of value. The preparation of an appraisal involves research into appropriate market areas, the assembly and analysis of information pertinent to a property, and the knowledge, experience, and professional judgment of the appraiser. An appraisal is an opinion of the quality, value or utility of a specific property. Appraisals may be required for any type of property. We specialize in Single-family homes, lots and acreage. The reasons for performing a real estate appraisal are just as varied. They are usually required whenever real estate is sold, mortgaged, taxed, insured or developed.
For example, appraisals are done for:
- Mortgage lending purposes
- Negotiation between buyers and sellers
- Value purpose
- Estate purposes
The role of the appraiser is to provide objective, impartial and unbiased opinions about the value of real property—providing assistance to those who own, manage, sell, invest in and/or lend money on the security of real estate. Appraisers assemble a series of facts, statistics and other information regarding specific properties, analyze this data and develop opinions of value. Each appraisal assignment challenges the appraiser’s ability to put analytical skills into practice, exercise sound judgment and communicate effectively with people. Appraisers spend part of their time preparing and writing appraisal reports but much of their work is accomplished away from the office, inspecting property, researching official records and deeds, and interviewing informed sources.
