Frequently Asked Questions About Our Bellaire Real Estate Appraisal Services
What defines a comparable sale for an appraisal?
A comp can be a sale, pending sale or a listing that is similar to the subject based on typical parameters of size, age, condition and location. The selection of comparable sales is in most residential appraisals, the single most important determining factor in establishing value. For this reason it is important that the appraiser adequately research the market area and consider any comparables which may assist in determining value.
What are the technical details of an appraisal?
An appraisal is a scientific approach to determining a likely value for a property. The appraiser will go through many steps to reach a final opinion of value. Common to most all appraisals is the determination of applicable approaches to value which include Market Data, Cost and Income. The appraiser’s final opinion of value is determined by reconciling the approaches used in the report and placing emphasis on the most relevant approach. The market data approach to value is usually the most relevant when determining value of residential properties.
Do appraisers perform a roof inspection?
No. Appraisers are not required to walk the roof, though they will visually inspect it from the ground. If they believe that a roof may need additional review they will notate it on the appraisal report. The appraiser is required to list any possible issues they may see with the roof which could require a second inspection by a competent professional.
The appraiser asked for a copy of the sales contract. Isn’t that a conflict?
There are often sales details in the contract that the appraiser must review to determine if they impact the appraisal value. Of the most concern are the terms of the contract and whether or not they are typical for the market, The sales contract has information such as the interest rate, the down payment amount, seller contributions or other personal property items that might be included in the sale. Other details that are reviewed are for confirmation such as ensuring the buyers and sellers are listed correctly on the contract.
