What is a Real Estate Appraisal?

Kishan Thakkar K

Before making any financial decision, you should know the value of your home. Whether you are considering purchasing, selling, or refinancing your home, you will have to undergo an appraisal.

You might feel overwhelmed when going through an appraisal if you don’t understand its meaning and technicalities.

How Do Real Estate Appraisals Work and Why Do They Matter?  

An appraisal is a valuation of property.

Both parties have biases when it comes to buying and selling a property. On the one hand, the seller might place a higher value on the property than its actual worth, while on the other, the buyer might place a lower value on the property because of their preconceived notions

During this dispute, an appraiser is hired to fairly assess the property and determine a reasonable figure that both parties can agree upon. The appraiser evaluates the property systematically, gathers information, and compares that information to market values to determine the property’s worth. 

Since banks are tasked with processing home loan applications, appraisals are necessary for them.
