Frequently Asked Questions About Our Mission Bend Real Estate Appraisal Services
Will my lender provide a copy of the appraisal?
Yes. Lenders are required to provide a copy of any appraisal reports ordered on your behalf regardless of the loan outcome.
How is market value defined in an appraisal?
Market value or fair market value is the most probable price that a property should bring (will sell for) in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller, each acting prudently, knowledgeably and assuming the price is not affected by undue stimulus.
What qualifications does a real estate appraiser have to meet?
Many states require all real estate appraisers to be, at a minimum, state licensed or state certified and have fulfilled rigorous education and experience requirements and must adhere to strict industry standards and a professional code of ethics as promulgated by the Appraisal Foundation. Additionally, appraisers must perform several thousand hours of appraisal work as an apprentice before gaining their license. Finally, appraisers must be able to show competency in not just valuation but in their geographic area.
What can I do to my home that will increase the value?
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.
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. For residential appraisals, the selection and adjusting of comparable sales has the most weight on determining the final opinion of value. It is the appraiser’s responsibility to adequately research the local real estate market and determine which comparable sales best represent the value characteristics of the subject property.
