Frequently Asked Questions About Our Spring Real Estate Appraisal Services
What can I do to my home that will increase the value?
When assessing the value of a home, an appraiser will take into consideration large improvements such as upgraded flooring throughout a home, high-end appliances, modern countertops, bathroom updates, extensive crown molding, covered patios and outdoor kitchens, and additional garage count. However, a local appraiser familiar with your market can help you figure out the best home-improvement value.
CMA vs. Appraisal
Frankly, it’s apples and oranges. A CMA relies heavily on market trends to conclude value. For residential property an appraiser will also rely heavily on comparable properties, but the level of research and adjustments to each sale are much more in depth. An appraisal report will consider land values, cost approaches and income approaches in the case of rentals. A CMA delivers a “ball park figure”, an appraisal delivers a defensible and carefully documented opinion of value. Perhaps the most important factor to consider is the professional creating the report. Any Realtor can create a CMA without having competence within the market area or home valuation in general. Appraisers on the other hand are bound by ethics rules that require them to have market competence or disclose the lack thereof. The appraisal is created by a state certified professional who makes a living out of valuing properties.
Will my lender provide a copy of the appraisal?
They should, yes. Lenders are required to provide a copy of any appraisal reports ordered on your behalf regardless of the loan outcome.
What is an appraisal contingency in a contract?
A sales contingency based on appraisal means that should the property appraise for less than the contract price the buyer can withdraw from the contract without penalty. A good example would be selling your home for $300,000 but only getting an appraisal for $290,000. If the buyer had the contract written contingent on appraisal, then they would be allowed to exit the contract.
