Steps for Appraisal

Assignment and Scope of Work
The appraiser receives an assignment, usually from a lender or other client, outlining the purpose of the appraisal and any specific requirements.
The appraiser physically inspects the property, taking note of its size, condition, layout, and features. They may also consider the neighborhood and surrounding amenities.
Gather relevant data, including information on recent comparable sales (comps), property tax records, public records, and other data that may impact the property’s value.

Conduct a market analysis to understand the current real estate market conditions in the area, including trends, supply and demand, and economic factors.

Identify and analyze recent sales of comparable properties in the vicinity. Adjustments are made for any differences between the subject property and the comparable sales.
In some cases, the appraiser may use the cost approach, which estimates the cost to replace the property with a similar one, adjusted for depreciation.
For income-producing properties, such as rental units, the appraiser may use the income approach, which considers the property’s potential income and capitalization rates.
The appraiser combines the information from the various approaches to arrive at a final value estimate for the property.
Document the appraisal findings in a comprehensive report, including the property description, analysis of comparable sales, adjustments made, and the final value estimate.
Provide the completed appraisal report to the client (typically a lender or other interested party) for their review.
Address any questions or concerns raised by the client and make corrections or adjustments to the appraisal report if necessary.
