Same Day Appraisal In Alexandria
I was asked just a couple of weeks ago if I could peform a same day appraisal in Alexandria. This same-day-service request was for a new home purchase, and there was a problem with the report that the bank had ordered. There were movers scheduled for the following day, and time was running out.
The client offered me $1,000 (for what is typically a $400 report). Still, I responded that I wasn't sure. Even though my schedule was clear, I didn't know if I could gather up all of the pieces, and turn around an accurate opinion in that short of a time. Whether it's $1,000 or $10,000, there is a lot of data to sift through, and there are a lot of elements of comparison (features) that are necessary to isolate. And I write my reports in sections--not in linear fashion from beginning to end--so I never really considered how long it took to finish.
In the end, I did it. I even had a few hours to spare. I delivered a same day appraisal to my client in Alexandria City. I followed all of the steps, I always do. I considered everything, and I arrived at a very likely conclusion (based on the market information). I seldom hear about what happens afterward, but in this case, I learned that the buyer was able to complete his negotiation get the house.
So ... now that I know that with extreme focus (and flexible accessability to the house, of course), I can perform an appraisal in the same day.
So, at a thousand bucks, I don't expect to sell too many of these. You're a lot better off ordering early and paying less than half that, but if you're in a bind, and you'd like to order a same day appraisal in Alexandria (or Arlington, Washington DC, Fairfax, Prince William, or other counties in Northern Virginia), head on over to www.appraisalsguaranteed.com.
