Most appraisals require either an interior or an exterior inspection.
Residential inspections generally take about a half-hour. The appraiser will measure the footprint of the building and has to photograph all the spaces in subject - including the attic and the basement. They need to photograph all the mechanicals. They will also look at conditions that may affect the appraisal. In addition they need to access the interior of any outbuildings on the property.
We pride ourselves on our rapid turn-around times and will keep you informed if extra time is needed. In general, residential appraisals take about 5-10 days. Commercial jobs take a little longer as there is more work.
The appraiser needs access to the home and however that can be arranged will work for us. The owner or borrower can be the one to grant that access or a real estate agent or a property caretaker.
Ongoing improvements are reported on and explained in the final report. Our appraisers can provide the report either "as-is" or
"subject-to" depending on your need.
