How to handle a low appraisal
Click here to access the full interview
Our company was founded in 1982 by my father Harold Messick who was the chief appraiser with a local savings and loan (1st Home Federal) and they were closing their appraisal section and offered to let him start his business in a vacant space in the bank and give us all of their appraisals etc. Now 32 years later we offer appraisals, property management and brokerage services for clients all over the US.
Most homeowners have a "number" in mind which is more than likely based on what they "need" in order to refinance or be able to move out to another home etc. Base you value on FACTS and not on "WHAT YOU NEED" to make a deal work and you'll always have success!
Low appraisals result in stress for mortgage brokers, property owners, buyers, and believe it or not APPRAISERS who are often seen as the "bad guy" when in fact they are the MOST regulated industry in real estate right now and have to follow strict USPAP and Ethics guidelines . Sometimes disgruntled parties turn in appraisers to the Appraisal Board if they don't like their value etc. Homeowners should know however this will go no where unless an appraiser is proven to have violated Standards of Professional Practice or Ethics. Again, its best to avoid low appraisals by educating yourself on your market or finding an appraiser or broker who is educated on your market.
