When Is the Appraisal Done When Buying a HomeFor sellers, they might find themselves asking, “What's my home worth?”. This can inform them of their listing price.

Buyers also want to know what a home is worth before buying it, which is why an appraisal is important.  Although it’s not theirs at the time of appraisal, if all goes well, it will be soon.

Here’s the rundown of the home buying process and what the appraisers do.


A Breakdown of the Homebuying Process

Deciding the right home for you is a big step, and it’s a complex project involving many tasks. Most buyers get connected to an agent to help them, and a majority of agent relationships begin through word-of-mouth referrals.

Caveat emptor is Latin for ‘may he beware” and applies to the sale of real estate property in most states. It’s sometimes referred to as “buyer beware”. This is not legal advice, and you should consult an attorney if you have concerns after reading this. However, from a seller’s perspective this is what should be disclosed in the homes for sale in Winter Garden, FL.

If you want to sell your home over the coming year, it’s essential to find ways to get it looking its best, inside and out. In particular, pay attention to the heart of the home – the kitchen.

Come Up with a Budget

Home Appraisal Checklist

Since you started considering selling your home, you’ve probably asked yourself, “what’s my home worth?”

You might even have a rough estimate of your property— an amount you’ve determined based on the cost when you bought it and how much you invested in it through the years.

However, even though you settled on a price with a buyer (and unless they will pay in cash upfront), this is not a true indicator of your property’s real worth. You will only know after an appraiser has thoroughly inspected your property.

An appraisal is an unbiased professional opinion of a home’s value. It is almost always used in every real estate transaction to determine if the property is really worth the contract price being negotiated. You can also use an appraisal in

Gallup polls continue to report real estate as the preferred investment choice for Americans, topping stocks and besting gold for another year in a row. Surprised that real estate beats out gold with American investors? Read on to discover four reasons why real estate investing is the safest choice.

With many advisors predicting the end of the bull market, investors with all of their eggs in the stock market basket could be headed towards losing the gains they’ve experienced over the last eight years or so.
