Frequently Asked Questions About Our Southwest Houston Area Real Estate Appraisal Services
The appraisal process is an orderly and concise method of reaching an estimate of value. The appraiser will go through many steps to reach a final opinion of value. The major phase of this process involves the application of the three approaches to value which include the Market Data Approach, the Cost Approach and Income Approach. The appraiser’s final opinion of value is determined by reconciling the approaches used in the report and placing emphasis on the most relevant approach. Residential appraisal reports usually rely heavily on the market data approach to value as the most applicable.
A real estate appraiser must be licensed or certified through a state agency and is required to meet educational, experience, and examination requirements. Appraising is an apprenticeship and all appraisers must log over 2,000 hours under a sponsor before they can get a license. Finally, appraisers must be able to show competency in not just valuation but in their geographic area.
Appraisals are much more comprehensive and consider more data points than a broker price opinion. Unlike a Broker, the appraiser is required by licensing laws to have no interest tied to to sales of a property and their fee cannot be based on the value of the property. A certified appraisal report can only be completed by an appraiser with proper state certifications. BPOs are typically completed faster than appraisals making them more appropriate in some cases where a ballpark value is needed in a hurry. Ultimately, the motivation behind the report is the largest difference between a BPO and an appraisal. A broker’s typical goal is to obtain a listing and earn a commission. This can lead to a conflict of interest whereby a broker could tell a client what they want to hear to gain a listing. A certified appraiser is independent and not earning a commission on the sale. Their only concern is to deliver a fair, accurate and objective appraisal.
