Please Feed the Appraisers…Good & Plenty For MLS Information & Unique Properties - 10/06/09 11:42 AM
You can find plenty of articles about how changing appraisal practices have affected how homes are bought, sold, and financed. What you might not learn until you talk things over with an experienced appraiser in an objective setting is how comparable sales information and the recording of it are also making a difference. Scan your average MLS listing and see whether the listing agent has simply used the maximum character count allowed for the description, and for evidence that suggests hurried data entry selections. If the listing is suspect along those sorts of lines, how does that facilitate the appraisal process? (1 comments)
