How Real Estate Appraiser Helps Real Estate Process

By: Locateappraisers

Check out the real estate market and you will quickly realize you need some help in the decision to sell your home, whether you want to do it now or sometime in the future. Either way, you need to consider what a New Jersey real estate appraiser can do. New Jersey is a unique market, of course, so you will need all the help you can get in order to make the first right step in the real estate process.

An Appraiser's Work

Appraisers most often come into the real estate transaction picture when they are hired by the lending company to come out to the home and come up with a value before there is a decision on the mortgage agreement. This is so everyone involved is aware of whether or not a good deal is about to go down. The assessment allows the bank to know if the loan they are taking out is a good investment. Also, if you disagree with an assessment or want a second opinion, you are allowed to get your own New Jersey real estate appraiser to come in and see what the value is before you decide to sell.

What an Appraiser Will Do - or You

Here's how the actual appraisal process will work. The New Jersey real estate appraiser will come to your home and take measurements from the outside. This will give them an accurate reading of the square footage. The appraiser will not factor into the value of the home anything that is on the inside. The appraiser will come in the house to assess any renovations you may have made to the space. If those renovations aren't obvious to see, you need to be sure to point them out to the appraiser while they are doing their appraisal.

The New Jersey real estate appraiser will take notes and fill out a standard from while in your home. After the appraiser is finished with their appraisal, they will move on to your neighborhood, checking out other homes, what they have sold for recently and how many homes have been sold within the past year. After the appraiser is finished, they will put together a researched report that they will show you so you can learn the value of your home on the current market.

What an Appraiser Can Do For A Seller

The real current market value of your home gives you many options to choose from. You can list your home for that price (or higher) and hope that buyers will take it at that. Or you could hold onto your home if it has a high value and try to cash in later. And if it turns out your home has a low value you may have to do some renovations to pump up the value to the buyers.
