  • How to Dispute a Low Home Appraisal

    One of the steps when selling a home in which the buyer is getting a mortgage is the real estate appraisal. In nearly every situation a lender is going to want to make sure that the money they are lending a borrower is a sound investment. Banks do this by getting an appraisal done on the home. The appraisals are done by an independent appraisal company. The lender wants to be confident that they are lending money on a property that is worth what the buyer is paying.

    There are times when an appraiser values a home for less than what the property sold for.

    As you can imagine this can create stress for all the parties involved including the seller, buyer, and real estate agents. Nobody wants to find out that a home did not appraise high enough. So what do you do when a home appraisal comes in too low? Great question right? In the article you will see a complete explanation on how to fight a low appraisal on your home. This is something that all real estate agents should have a strong grasp of so when the time comes they know what to do.

    Having to challenge a low real estate appraisal is not that uncommon. There are many instances where an appraiser can be wrong. These reasons for a low appraisal value are all explained in detail.

    Fighting and winning the battle against the appraiser is not going to be easy. It can be done, however, if you know what your doing. You must understand the steps that will be necessary to carry through with the dispute. Take a look at all the tips for fighting the appraisal and if you enjoy the advice consider sharing the article socially.

    Actually the bigger issue is not the apprasial but the buyer. There is now a document ahowing one persons professional opinion of value. Indirectly you are sending a message to the buyer that the value the seller wants you to pay is extremly tight to the high end of the market place
