Why might you need an appraisal? How do appraisals work?

In many cases, lenders need a professional, independent appraisal of the property you want to buy or refinance
to ensure that it is worth at least as much as they are being asked to lend on it.

A professional, independent appraiser from Priority Appraisal, will visit your home and inspect its interior and exterior. Do not postpone the appraisal!
Any delays add time to an already lengthy process.

Our appraiser will form an opinion on the probable market value of the property considering sales of similar homes in the area among other factors.
He or she will prepare an appraisal report explaining the conclusion.
