I doubt if it is dependent on buyer or seller.

Though it is possible for some of the appraisers.

David Saks, In our area it will depend on the lender more than if the appraisal is being done for the buyer or the seller.

It depends on the people who do the appraisal.

I know the question  relishes of bias, Sam. I'd like to determine partiality that prevents objective consideration for fairness and determine who the appraisal favors most, i.e., a higher appraisal for the seller or a lower appraisal for the buyer. Place the differences under a microscope and I'm certain we'll find martket disparities and inequality either significant or otherwise.
