You Can Help the Appraiser and Yourself
Don’t hesitate to provide the appraiser with any information of records that might
facilitate the appraisal process and lead to a proper value conclusion. Relevant factual
data includes… …
You may want to ask the appraiser some questions about the appraisal process.
Professional standards of practice prohibit appraisers from discussing the details of the
appraisal assignment with you if the appraisal was requested by your employer or the
relocation company management company. However, the appraiser can tell you what
they look for and how difference property characteristics are weighed in the analysis.
Selecting an Appraiser
You may be given an opportunity to select one or more of the appraisers recommended
by your employer or relocation firm. Even if no appraisers are recommended to you,
there is a means of identifying those who are skillful and experiences. Ask the
appraiser about his/her qualifications and expertise of your area. Try to select
appraisers that value homes frequently in your town or city. Appraisers familiar with
your area are much more likely to arrive at the eventual anticipated sales price then
appraisers outside your area.
