Reasons to order an appraisal from MidPrairie Appraisals, LLCTo a lot of people, an appraisal is simply a line item on the break-sheet for a mortgage or refinance. Practically all lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are incredibly high, even though there are a growing number of automated home valuation processes that might appear more economical than an appraisal. But is obtaining a mortgage the only reason you should get an appraisal? Are there also instances when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional could be beneficial? Contact us today.
Settling an estate with peace of mind
The loss of a loved one is a hard time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often calls for an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. We ensure the fullest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these matters. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, understanding the absolute value of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten an honest deal.
Relocating?We are familiar with the headaches associated with an employee relocation. That being said, we take great care in organizing an accommodating appointment time for the appraisal inspection. We encourage relocating employees to provide input on the positive aspects of their property, along with information about any current sales or listings in their area that they want considered during our intensive process.
Don't sell out short or keep your home on the market too long.Whether you decide to sell your home on your own or use the assistance of a real estate agent, a professional appraiser will help you make a more informed decision regarding your asking price. Separate from a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what price the house sells for. The price we charge isn't related to the sales price, but rather they are based on our efforts to finish the appraisal.
On a daily basis, we analyze the difference in value items like an interior/exterior remodel or other type of improvement can make. And we're experts in knowing how long properties are on the market. So, seeking a professional appraisal is a reliable way to decide what improvements will add value and what a suitable sales price is for your home so you don't come up short or have your house on the market an unnecessarily long time.
