What Happens During the Appraisal Process?

Congrats! You’re nearing the final steps of the home sale process. Here’s what you should expect during the home appraisal process.

As we’re trending out of a down market, it is more important than ever to pay close attention to what happens during the appraisal process.  The role of the appraiser is to report to the bank whether your home is worth what the buyer is paying. Work with your selling agent to notify the appraiser of everything that’s most important about your home, including square footage, upgrades, special features, and location.

In the below video, Ronnie Aiosa with the Boswell Aiosa Group at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage discusses what you can expect during the appraisal process when selling your home.
