Why An Appraisal?

All property owners need an appraisal at some point during their ownership. Most need at least one appraisal during the buying and/or negotiating and financing processes. In todays litigious society, a disinterested third part analysis relating to the value of real estate becomes important as it relates to financing, estate planning, tax appeals including both assessments and IRS reviews, and all types of litigation where real property is involved. With ground conservancy being a priority locally and nationally, it too has become a reason to have a property appraisal completed. And, with the ongoing concerns about the present and projected value of real estate, an independent appraisal is paramount as it relates to the buyer, seller, mortgage broker or banker and real estate sales people involved in a transaction. The fact is, there are almost as many reasons to have a property appraised, as there are properties to appraise!!
