Faster Appraisals

Five steps to quicker real estate appraisal turn times If you worked with appraisers a decade ago, you probably know how much technologies have changed over the years.

When using online ordering, you will get automatic email acknowledgments that the job was delivered, and quick, secure .PDF format report delivery. It’s the single biggest time saver available to both of us! And we don’t need to retype info from a fax, and you don’t have to question whether we received the order. Do you think you’re providing complete and accurate information on the subject property? There’s nothing like being one number off on the street address to add unnecessary time to an appraisal assignment. And should you have a tax parcel number, plat map number, subdivision name or anything more that distinctly distinguishes the property, please pass it along. We even welcome lists of recent sales in the area — though be advised that professional appraisers must always do their own research on comparable sales, and ours could differ from yours. Are you letting us know in advance any details about the house or property that might make it extraordinary? Cookie-cutter properties are relatively simple to appraise.
