What do appraisers look for?
An appraisal is an expert judgment or estimate of the value of real estate as of a given date, based on market comparison. The following factors are used to determine the value of the property: the amount of land and landscaping, the size and number of rooms and bathrooms, the size of the kitchen and its storage space, the size and condition of the basement, attic and screened-in porches, and the quality of construction.
Who pays for appraisals?
The buyer pays for an appraisal of the property as part of normal mortgage closing costs. The lender will require an appraisal of the property to assure that the value of the property is sufficient for the loan.
