Frequently Asked Questions About Our Missouri City Real Estate Appraisal Services
Can an appraisal serve as a home inspection?
No. Appraisals and home inspections are two very different services. Inspections involve a licensed home inspector or contractor who evaluates the structure and mechanical systems (heating, plumbing, air-conditioning, etc.) of a house, from foundation to rooftop. While the appraiser must perform a basic inspection of the subject property, it is nowhere near as extensive as what a home inspector does. The majority of the appraisers efforts are focused on market research to determine value based on “assumed” condition of the home.
What is Highest and Best Use in an Appraisal?
Typically, highest & best use means the use or utilization that provides the most profitable return on investment. For a highest and best use to be acceptable it must be legally permissible, physically possible, and adequately supported when all legal and probable alternatives are considered.
Are real estate appraisals really necessary?
Real estate makes up the largest asset class in the world, making the proper valuation of it essential to the global economy. Real estate appraisers utilize many different methods to determine the current market value of a property. The appraiser’s professional opinion acts as a hedge against risky investments or purchases within current market trends. And because the appraiser is trained to be an impartial third party in the lending process, this profession serves as a vital “check in the system,” protecting real estate buyers from overpaying for property as well as lenders from over lending to buyers.
Are your general purpose forms similar to the FNMA URAR 1004 form?
A “Fannie Mae” – URAR form report has many items required by the secondary mortgage lending market, that are not necessarily needed in a simple report to find the market value. The most fundamental way to determine market value is to compare the subject property to recently sold homes in a given neighborhood. The lender required 1004 form often has additional requirements to satisfy lender security which is not necessary information for a private appraisal client. An example of this extra data would be census and SMSA information which is strictly for lender’s internal tracking of loans. Our general purpose form reports are particularly well suited for helping a seller to price a home for sale, helping a buyer to decide how much to offer or pay for a home, for estate tax, gift tax, tax grievance, uncontested divorce & most any other potential use other than for obtaining a mortgage or in litigation where the report will be used in conjunction with expert testimony.
