Real estate appraisal – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Real estate appraisal, property valuation or land valuation is the process of developing an opinion of value for real property (usually market value). Real estate transactions often require appraisals because they occur infrequently and every property is unique (especially their condition, a key factor in valuation), unlike corporate stocks, which are traded daily and are identical (thus a centralized Walrasian auction like a stock exchange is unrealistic). The location also plays a key role in valuation. However, since property cannot change location, it is often the upgrades or improvements to the home that can change its value. Appraisal reports form the basis for mortgage loans, settling estates and divorces, taxation, and so on. Sometimes an appraisal report is used to establish a sale price for a property.
Besides the mandatory educational grade, which can vary from Finance to Construction Technology, most, but not all, countries require appraisers to have the license for the practice. Usually, the real estate appraiser has the opportunity to reach 3 levels of certification: Appraisal Trainee, Licensed Appraiser and Certified Appraiser. Appraisers are often known as “property valuers” or “land valuers”; in British English they are “valuation surveyors”. If the appraiser’s opinion is based on market value, then it must also be based on the highest and best use of the real property. In the United States, mortgage valuations of improved residential properties are generally reported on a standardized form like the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report. Appraisals of more commercial properties (e.g., income-producing, raw lands) are often reported in narrative format and completed by a Certified General Appraiser.
Key Points In An Appraisal Report –
In every appraisal assignment, the appraiser should see to it that the client understands not only the final value, but the appraisal report in its entirety.
The Appraisal report is the product of the whole appraisal process. It is an important document for a decision maker in deciding whether or not to accept the real estate transaction. It outlines the strength and weaknesses of a property. Thus, the conclusion in the report can make or break any real estate negotiations.
Besides market value, what are the other factors that a property owner, real estate practitioner or investor should look into in an appraisal report?
Here are some of the major factors to consider as you read over the appraisal report.
Proper identification of the property.
The most important in an appraisal is the proper identification of the property. Definitely, a wrong property identified results to a wrong appraisal. The appraiser should indicate the correct characteristics of the property like shape, size, depth, age, topography and boundaries. Documents such as the property title and tax declaration should match with the public records in the city assessor, engineering, city planning and Bureau of Lands.
If the market values has been going up, but the report says the market is going down, that could not support the final value. The report should show what is unfolding in the market otherwise, that could lead to erroneous adjustments in the report.
The neighborhood boundaries listed in the appraisal report should show the correct similar neighborhood on which the subject property and the comparable sales are located. It can make a big difference if the wrong comparables are used from inferior or superior neighborhoods.
Selection of comparables (comps).
The comparables used are the good substitution of properties a buyer might consider purchasing instead of the subject property. It should almost be identical with the property appraised. Otherwise, it is a wrong comps and questionable.
Some reports may make an adjustment by just getting the average of the total price of comps in the market. It does not reflect the real estate market and are not reasonable.
In measuring the improvements, appraisal report should present a relatively similar to official records or to what a buyer know of the property. It is important to double-check, in case of error.
The report won’t show an adjustment for every single update, but the final value should consider improvements. Keep in mind of course that not all improvements contribute to value. For example, a swimming pool in the backyard probably won’t be a huge plus in a beach area.
Qualification of the appraiser.
Appraisal reports mirror the experience and qualification of the appraiser. Property owner, investors and real estate practitioners should look for appraisers that are not only licensed but possess a certain level of experience. The report should indicate the client list and types of property appraised by the appraiser. This will show if the appraiser is qualified to do the assignment.
Now that you know the important elements of an appraisal report, it is time to get one from an appraiser. Remember that your property is one of your most important lifetime investments. The money spent on a quality appraisal is well spent.
