I had the pleasure of chatting with Betsy Hughes, SRA with BK Appraisals. Appraisers holding the SRA designation have met rigorous requirements relating to education, testing, experience and demonstration of knowledge, understanding, and ability. This designation sets her apart from the typical residential appraiser. In order to maintain the designation continuing education above the state requirements is required.
We asked some of our listeners what things do you want to ask a real estate appraiser:
What are the requirements that a real estate appraiser is looking for when determining the appraised market value?
Does it help for a real estate agent to forward upgrades and comparables to help determine sales price?
What are the value of swimming pools and acreages?
What are the adjustments for bedroom count?
