One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked is "what is an appraisal?"

An appraisal is an independent, formally presented opinion of a property's value. This value is estimated by skilled appraisers who are unbiased and impartial in their judgements.

Estimating the value of a property helps the intended user determine what a home is worth. While appraisals are often done in connection with banks for mortgage financing, appraisals are completed for a variety of reasons such as capital gains, litigation, division of assets, estate planning etc. (Click here to discover for more reasons to get an appraisal!)
