WHAT DOES AN APPRAISER DO?

An appraiser provides you with an impartial opinion of value of real estate. The appraisal is usually a written document setting forth an opinion of value based on research, as of a specific date, supported by the presentation and analysis of relevant data.

An accredited appraiser provides support, advice and valuations on real property. They are trained professionals who observe, research and analyze the real estate market, taking into account the myriad of contributing factors that affect value.  They are interested in facts, and will thoroughly investigate the property and neighborhood. In order to do the job to the best of their ability, they keep abreast of zoning, current market trends, the value of real estate in the area, taxes and special assessments.

It is a vital role in the world, a role that's become even more important in today's ever more value-conscious society.
