The property features most significant to an appraisal are those characteristics most desirable to buyers and sellers in the local market. Location is always the primary consideration, including convenience to employment services and shopping, as is access to transportation and the range of available utilities, conformity of homes and neighborhood is essential to many buyers, while recreation and aesthetic elements of the area is also desirable, finally the perception of value appreciation is a fundamental motivation.

While the principle elements of motivation for property ownership are relatively constant, each marketplace has its own unique expression of these principles. Therefore, a competent appraiser is familiar with economic, social and environmental influences affecting property value in a particular locality.

Typically, the appraisal will meet with you at your property, having questions regarding features which you may wish to point out, such as recent upgrades, remodeling or additions. Some home owners will consult an appraiser as they plan significant improvement for estimated returns in property appreciation.

Property elements such as dwelling size, age of construction and renovation, quality of materials and workmanship, as well as the level maintenance and upkeep are all valuable considerations in an appraisal of a residential home.

Appraisal has been defined as the practice of determining the value of real property, most commonly based upon the comparison of monetary equivalents, or what appraisers call “Comps”.

Most importantly an appraisal provides a professional, independent and unbiased opinion of the value of a property, from which a client or home owner can make decisions with an informed estimate of the Market Value.
