After waiting on the sidelines, you’re finally decided that now is the time to buy in Atlanta. You fall in love with a home, but there are a few pressing questions. How much is the home really worth? Is the asking price in a proper range? Are there other people making better offers? What should I do?
Fortunately, the answer is simple.
A pre-contract appraisal from Atlanta Appraisers plays an essential role in almost every sale involving real estate property, whether it be to determine the sale price, help negotiate a fair sale price, or to set an offering price. Whenever typical financing is being used to purchase a property, the lender will require an appraisal to determine the current market value of the property. The market value is needed to assist the lender in deciding whether or not to approve the requested loan amount. Appraisals performed for typical financing purposes are held to the same high standard that Atlanta Appraisers is known for. The accuracy of the appraisal is one of the cornerstones of the lending process.
Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee is based on our efforts to finalize the report, not a percentage of your home’s sale price. Our reports conform to the USPAP guidelines and all federal regulations and standards. By investing in a pre-contract appraisal from Atlanta Appraisers, we’ll help you make the smartest decisions for your future. Call us today for your complimentary pre-contract consultation.
