If an appraiser is coming over, it’s usually because something big is happening. Maybe it’s a refinance, purchase, divorce, bankruptcy or estate settlement situation. Whatever the case, it’s important to be prepared to offer detailed information to the appraiser where possible. After all, knowing more about a property and having a deeper perspective on the neighborhood can play a huge role in the appraised value.
A RESOURCE FOR YOU: I’ve included some snapshots below of a downloadable basic information sheet I developed for home owners and real estate agents to give to appraisers. The download consists of the three pages you see below, and you can DOWNLOAD HERE for free as a PDF or WORD document.
I hope this ends up being helpful for you or your clients. I included a WORD document in case you need to edit the form to your liking. As a further resource, check out an article about sharing comps with an appraiser as well as 10 things NOT to do when the appraiser comes over. 🙂
