14 Mar Relocation Appraisal
Time has a direct correlation to money and finance– and this is never more true than when a person decides to sell their home and relocate. A real estate appraiser professional will be required to adequately assess a realistic property value. When a person lists their home on the open market in order to take advantage of relocation assistance, they’re usually not only interested in a “fair market value” of the property, but more specially, the anticipated sales price of the property. The desired time period usually does not exceed between 120 and 180 days. But this can also depend significantly on the local market. Relocation home appraisals don’t just require speed and accuracy. They also require a special knowledge and expertise– various skills and on-going training– interests not always associated with the lending and mortgage appraisal.
Relocation Factors in Appraisal
When performing a relocation appraisal, special consideration is given to recently closed sales. In addition competing listings, pending sales, expired listings and withdrawn listings in the property are crucial in valuation. The end result of this analysis is a reliable forecast of a sales price you can rely on. Considering the local market and neighborhood, and significant factors reflecting the effective date of the appraisal. All Relocation Appraisals are completed and then reported on the ERC Residential Appraisal Report form. This is the widely accepted standard and format in the Relocation industry.
We have monthly subscriptions for many appraisal tools of the trade in order to complete Sacramento Valley and local residential home appraisals. These include Realquest data services and Sacramento Metrolist Services (MLS) as local data sources, as well as Hmfacts and Marshall Swift for cost services. These help facilitate our Sacramento appraiser valuations on local properties, and are the most reliable products available, and standards in the appraisal industry. In addition, we will occasionally use online free databases such as Zillow and Redit; however, these are only ancillary valuation services and are not primary reliable data sources. MLS and Realquest services have data included for Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, and Yolo counties.
