FAQ About Our Austin Real Estate Appraisal Services

head-sep If my appraisal is higher than my tax value, could my real estate tax bill go up? Expand

A tax collector researches recently sold homes to indicate the appraised value, they do not rely on independent appraisals. A property appraiser is required to preserve confidentiality with the client, which would usually be you (if you ordered the appraisal) or the bank (in a financial related appraisal), not the county tax authorities. An independent appraisal is solely for the use of the individual and will not shared at any point with 3rd parties unless determined by the individual, such as an opportunity to dispute property tax values.

Will a house appraiser need to calculate measurements of the house? Expand

A home appraiser is usually expected to verify the actual living area and gross building calculations of all structures on the property. Measurements are performed from the exterior using ANSI guidelines though the appraiser may be required finish inside measurements for multi-story houses. House appraisers are permitted to round up to the closest foot per accepted guidelines, but this is typically rare. If you hold any docs that accurately depicts the the measurements then I recommend having that for the appraiser’s review .

What sources do appraisers utilize when analyzing data? Expand

One tool home appraisers depend on most when appraising a property, is the local MLS. They utilize this to assemble specifics about recently sold properties known as comparable properties. The quality and reliability of each sample of data is reviewed by the appraiser. A property appraiser may use information supplied by the customer or a real estate agent so long as that information can be verified as true and accurate.

Why do appraisals cost so much? Expand

Appraisers are burdensomely regulated and are required to maintain certifications, professional associations, MLS access and professional education, all of which come with costs. Appraising real property is actually professionally technical employment that is difficult to perform and takes hours of work to finish an accurate appraisal. There exist no “templates” and each home is an individual challenge not to mention it needs to be compared to the current market. Once all expenses are subtracted|you deduct all expenses from an appraisers earning, the average made per hour is much lower than most would think.
