Frequently Asked Questions About Our Piney Point Village Real Estate Appraisal Services
What can an appraiser do if there are no comps in my area?
One of the most difficult scenarios for appraisers in the lack of recently sold comparable properties. If that’s the case they can either use older comps that may not be indicative of current market conditions, use farther away comps in neighborhoods that may not truly comparable, or make greater adjustments to what is available by comparing big to small or older to new. These are perfectly acceptable solutions to a lack of comps, and the appraisal report even includes an adjustment line for “age of sale”.
Why does the lender give the appraiser a copy of the sales contract?
There are often sales details in the contract that the appraiser must review to determine if they impact the appraisal value. All terms of the sales contract must be reviewed and compared to what is typical of sales in the market area. 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. Other details that are reviewed are for confirmation such as ensuring the buyers and sellers are listed correctly on the contract.
What is an appraisal contingency in a contract?
A contingency in a sales contract is a requirement that must be met, otherwise the contract can be withdrawn. Example: if a property is under contract for $300,000 and the appraisal comes in at $290,000, then the buyer has the option (in addition to other contingencies) to exit the deal and recoup any earnest money.
Can Realtors speak with the appraiser?
A Realtor, or any third party involved in the transaction, may provide details about the property or the transaction to the appraiser. An agent, or other persons with an interest in the real estate transaction, may not intimidate or bribe an appraiser and an appraiser may not disclose confidential information at any time.
