There are Different Kinds of Appraisals to Fit Each Need
Desktop Residential Appraisal
If you’re just curious about the market value of a residential property (perhaps you intend to list it) a Desktop Appraisal is a good choice to start. The appraiser researches the market area, selects comparable sales and makes adjustments for differences based on public and MLS information to arrive at a value. The appraiser does not visit the properties.
Drive-By Residential Appraisal
If you need a more in-depth appraisal perhaps for portfolio valuation or a tenant occupied property where you don’t need an internal inspection you can order this type known as a 2055.
In addition to the office work the appraiser visits and photographs the subject and comparable sales from the street and can make additional adjustments for location, condition, view etc.
Full Residential Appraisal
If you are purchasing a property and need an appraisal for a mortgage the lender typically orders the appraisal from one of their approved appraisers and so you should not order directly from us without their prior approval. This type of appraisal is a Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR) also known as a 1004. Here the appraiser visits the subject property and does an exterior and interior inspection with photographs plus visits the comparable sales and taking photos from the street.
WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY DOING INTERIOR INSPECTIONS.
Any time there is vacant land, excess or surplus land with a residence or a home on a site one acre or more we have to quote a fee based on the individual case. You can accept the quote and get the same discount, payment method and delivery conditions as before.
