What to Expect During a Residential Real Estate Appraiser Site Inspection

If you're a homeowner getting a residential real estate appraisal, you might be wondering what to expect during the site inspection of your property. First of all, don't worry – it's a pretty easy process! Here's what you can expect:

The appraiser will visit your home and do a walk-through of both the interior and exterior of your property. They'll take some measurements and photos, and they might ask you some questions about your home's features and any recent improvements you've made.

The appraiser will also take note of the overall condition of your property, such as the age and condition, HVAC system, and any other major systems or components. They'll also look at the general appearance of your home such as view, landscaping, and any unique features that could affect the property value.

Throughout the process, the appraiser will be friendly and professional, and they'll work to make sure you feel comfortable and informed about what's happening. Once they're finished, they'll compile their findings into a comprehensive appraisal report that will detail their assessment of your property's value.

Overall, getting a residential real estate appraisal is a pretty easy process, and the appraiser will do their best to make it as stress-free as possible for you. So, if you're getting ready for an appraisal, take a deep breath and know that you've got this!
