Frequently Asked Questions About Our Hedwig Village Real Estate Appraisal Services
How long is an appraisal good for?
While the appraisal value you receive is good “as of” the date of the appraisal, values change as the market changes. The speed at which changes in home values occur in your market area determines how long an appraisal value is valid. If your appraisal is for a loan then lender guidelines will also impact the appraiser’s decision on comparables and timingin adjustments. Most appraisers and lenders agree three months is the maximum amount of time that an appraisal holds a valid value, referred to as the “term of validity.”
Do appraisers use sites like Zillow or Trulia?
Appraisers do not use Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, etc. Instead, appraisers mainly rely on the local MLS to find reliable sales and listing data. If a sale took place off the MLS, but is verifiable through reliable means, the appraiser can use that as well. Because of the inaccuracy and misleading data provided by online valuation sites, appraisers usually do not recommend anyone use them for anything other than ballpark numbers. We understand why folks use them and if we had to pick one we like Realtor.com as it’s the most reliable information.
What improvements add the most value to my home?
Though you never want to over-improve your home in a way that exceeds the median standards of your neighborhood, you can increase the value of your home by doing minor paint, fixture, and flooring updates. Because some improvements may cost more to implement than they can add to the value of a home, it is more beneficial to have a local real estate appraiser provide a cost/benefit analysis rather than assuming the owner’s tastes will conform with the current market trends.
The appraiser asked for a copy of the sales contract. Isn’t that a conflict?
An appraiser must review all details of the transaction to ensure nothing that will influence the appraisal value is missed. Of the most concern are the terms of the contract and whether or not they are typical for the market, Certain terms such as seller concessions towards the buyer’s closing costs could impact the appraised value if not inline with what is typical in the market. The appraiser must also verify if the property seller is the owner of public record.
