What is an appraisal?

An appraisal is a thought process leading to an opinion of value. This opinion or estimate is arrived at through a formal process that typically uses the three ''common approaches to value''. They are the Cost Approach - which is what it would cost to replace the improvements, less physical deterioration and other factors, plus the land value. There is the Sales Comparison Approach - which involves making a comparison to other similar, nearby properties which have recently sold. The Sales Comparison Approach is normally the most accurate and best indicator of value for a residential property. The third approach is the Income Approach, which is of most importance in appraising income producing properties - it involves estimating what an investor would pay based on the income produced by the property. 


What does an appraiser do? 

An appraiser provides a professional, unbiased opinion of market value, to be used in making real estate decisions. 


Why would a person need a home appraisal? 

There are many reasons to obtain an appraisal with the most common reason being real estate and mortgage transactions. Other reasons for ordering an appraisal include: 

To obtain a loan.
To lower your tax burden.
To establish the replacement cost of insurance.
To contest high property taxes.
To settle an estate.
To provide a negotiating tool when purchasing real estate.
To determine a reasonable price when selling real estate.
To protect your rights in a condemnation case.
Because a government agency such as the IRS requires it.
If you are involved in a lawsuit.
