Frequently Asked Questions About Our Memorial Area Real Estate Appraisal Services
Does the Listing agent get a copy of the appraisal?
If they did not order the appraisal then no. The Listing Agent does not get a copy of the appraisal unless the borrower wants to share the report. We notify the Listing Agent the appraisal arrived and only that it made value (or didn’t make value). No other details are provided .
Is an attic inspection part of the appraisal process?
Appraisers will only need attic access if performing the appraisal for FHA loans. If possible, make the first few feet around the attic entrance accessible so that the appraiser may enter the attic and perform a visual inspection. If attic access is not possible or limited by obstructions, the appraiser can opt to perform a “head and shoulders” only inspection and note this in his report.
What does a home appraiser look for?
An appraiser should determine the scope of work, follow through with an inspection, and provide an opinion of value to the client. The appraiser will generally consider only permanent fixtures and real property. This information will help to assist the appraiser throughout the valuation and comparison process. The appraiser estimates the square footage (GLA – gross living area), by measuring the exterior of the home. It’s imperative that an appraiser accurately measures and takes out any non-living areas to ensure that the GLA is correct.
Are home appraisers influenced by cleanliness or clutter?
Generally not, appraisers are trained to overlook the clutter in the house. With that being said, clutter and cleanliness that is taken so far as to damage the interior condition of the house is another story. It is always beneficial to present the home in its best light while being appraised or shown to prospective buyers.
