Appraisal On Monday - I'll Be There With Comps!

The appraisal is taking place this coming Monday and I will be there for my buyers, with comps in hand!

I am always amazed at how many buyer's agents do not meet the appraiser and have comps to turn over. While many appraisers don't use the Realtor provided comps, at least I know I did my best to bring the purchase to the closing table for my clients.

Barbara Jo, I find most of these appraisers do not want to speak or meet with a Realtor. They say if they have question they will call you. This is  good question..

I always try to meet with the appraiser to share comps, on either side. After all the appraisal affects both sides. I'm very low key and simply offer to share what I have and it's never been a problem.

Good for you being there Barb. I know so many of the appraisers in my area taht when they call we chat and I ask them to call me if they have any problem. It rarely happens but if they do call we talk it through and work it out. They know I know the market and have probably seen the comps and can share condition.

You are always prepared and you know how to really make sure your buyers get the best. Buyers would be wise to choose you for their real estate professional.

Good morning Barbara-Jo. You're right, I always recommend that the list agent be ready to meet the appraiser and have comps in hand to make the appaiser's job that much easier.

Make it a great weekend!

You're doing the right thing, Barbara-Jo.  I'm even more amazed more listing agents don't show up with comps as well.

 Actually, the listing agent is not showing up, I am working with the buyer. The listing agent had NO interest in being there.
