Contrary to Popular Belief, the Appraisal is NOT a Commodity

Monday, December 2, 2013

Many mistakenly view the appraisal as a commodity. True, there are several traditional methods that every appraiser must go through when determining the value of a home that may make the appraisal seem commoditized, including researching the market, analyzing comparables, inspecting the property and making appropriate adjustments to the comparable sales. But those methods are exactly why the appraisal is NOT a commodity. In reality, it is a myth that all appraisals are more or less the same, even though it may seem so at first glance.
