Important Questions to Ask Your Appraiser During a Home Valuation

Aug 14, 2021

If you are buying, selling, or buying and selling a home, you have appraisal needs, but you may not be exactly sure what they are. While you know it’s important to verify the overall value of the potential transactions in play, a home purchase is a major purchase, and knowing where to start can be daunting. Knowing the right questions to ask your appraiser during a home appraisal can help you stay on track and move forward with the home purchase that is right for you. At Allstate Appraisal – in Illinois and serving the nation – we take great pride in helping home buyers like you make big-ticket purchases with the confidence that comes from knowing their investments are solid. 

Are Your Appraisers Members of any Professional Organizations?

It’s difficult to move forward with a purchase as monumental as a home without an appraisal that you have complete faith in, and this means an appraisal that’s created by accredited appraisers. At Allstate Appraisal, our appraisal professionals are all Certified General Appraisers, and many of them have achieved the Appraisal Institute’s prestigious MAI designation. When you work with us, you can trust the source. 

How Long Have You Been in the Appraisal Business?

Creating thorough, reliable, and informative appraisals requires serious experience. Obtaining a home appraisal from someone who dabbles in the work or who is testing the waters isn’t going to cut it. You are looking for verified results that help drive your purchase, and at Allstate Appraisal, we’re not only backed by six decades of experience but also have our own inhouse team of highly specialized review appraisers who checks each of our appraisals line by line to provide you with the accuracy you need and the peace of mind you are looking for. 

What Is the Appraiser’s Role?

You know you need an appraisal to carry out your home purchase, but you may not be clear about the appraiser’s role. The fact is that an experienced appraiser will provide you with an honest value of the property in question that is impartial, objective, and without bias – thus allowing you to make important decisions that are based on the verifiable facts of the matter (rather than on a gut feeling, whim, notion, or guess). 

How Can an Experienced and Well-Credentialed Appraiser Help Me?

You are in the market to purchase a home, which is a major purchase that is likely one of the biggest you will ever make, and having the right appraiser in your corner can make an immense difference. Your appraiser’s experience, knowledge, and impartiality can help bridge the divide between uncertainty and sound decisions that support your best interests.
