Appalachian Appraisal Services helps listing agents and for-sale-by-owners to determine a listing price. Sell the home faster by understanding the nuances of your market segment by hiring a certified real estate appraiser that is experienced in your local market area.
Today many homes are purchased without a real estate appraisal requirement from the buyer’s lender. In this scenario, the real estate agents are commission-based, and the unbiased and objective opinion of an appraisal is waived. Both realtors and appraisers see this as a potential issue because there are no checks and balances on the purchase price. The buyer could pay more than the market value. The typical home buyer must make a down payment of 20% or more of the purchase price. It’s the buyer’s down payment that could be lost if the property is sold for more than market value. On the other side of the table, the listing/buyer agent’s liability could be increased in a transaction with no unbiased and objective opinion of market value rendered.
Our advice to realtors is to hire Appalachian Appraisal Services to provide an unbiased and objective opinion of value before the loan closes with the agent and their client as an intended user. There are many situations that could go wrong in a real estate transaction without a certified unbiased and objective opinion of market value. Do not take any chances and hire Appalachian Appraisal Services for a professional unbiased and objective opinion of market value.
