What's an Appraisal

When you need to know the true value of a property, you need an expert. Find out about the appraisal process.

ATTENTION ALL LAKE LANIER BUYERS: LOW SUPPLY IS DRIVING SALES PRICES UP, BUT INTRINSIC VALUE MAY NOT HAVE CHANGED. BEFORE YOU PUT A HOME UNDER CONTRACT CONSIDER GETTING AN APPRAISAL FROM A LAKE LANIER EXPERT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT OVERPAYING FOR THAT HOME. IF YOU ARE GETTING A LOAN YOU MAY SAY I AM PROTECTED BY THE BANK APPRAISAL. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE. APPRAISERS HAVE A TENDENCY TO APPRAISE A HOME AT OR VERY NEAR THE SALES/OFFER PRICE, BECAUSE THEY GET A COPY OF THAT SALES CONTRACT FROM THE LENDER AND THEY LET THAT SALES CONTRACT IN SOME CASES INFLUENCE THEIR APPRAISED VALUE.  GET AN APPRAISAL DONE FOR YOUR OWN PIECE OF MIND EITHER BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR OFFER OR AS PART OF THE OFFER, MAKE IT CONTINGENT UPON YOUR OWN APPRAISAL RESULTS (NOT THE BANK APPRAISAL RESULTS).

The Best money you can spend is for a Pre-Listing Appraisal as it can be used for negotiations and rebuttal ammunition, should the buyers lender have an appraisal that you do not agree with!

As a Buyer it is also very WISE to get an appraisal BEFORE you make an offer on any home! Do NOT overpay for that home! Especially CASH buyers, where no loan is involved, get an appraisal first!
