An appraisal is a professional appraiser's opinion of value. The preparation of an appraisal involves research
into appropriate market areas; the assembly and analysis of information pertinent to a property; and the knowledge, experience,
and professional judgment of the appraiser. . Appraisals may be required for any type of property, including single-family homes,
apartment buildings and condominiums, office buildings, shopping centers, industrial sites, and farms. The reasons for
performing a real property appraisal are just as varied. They are usually required whenever real property is sold, mortgaged,
taxed, insured, or developed. For example, appraisals are prepared for:
- Mortgage lending purposes
- Tax assessments and appeals of assessments
- Negotiation between buyers and sellers
- Government acquisition of private property for public use
- Business mergers or dissolutions
- Lease negotiations
What is the Role of the Appraiser?
The role of the appraiser is to provide objective, impartial, and unbiased opinions about the
value of real property?providing assistance to those who own, manage, sell, invest in, and/or lend money on the security of real
estate. Appraisers assemble a series of facts, statistics, and other information regarding specific properties, analyze this data,
and develop opinions of value. Each appraisal assignment challenges the appraiser's ability to put analytical skills into practice,
exercise sound judgment, and communicate effectively.
What Qualifications Must Appraisers Have?
All states require appraisers to be state licensed or certified in order to provide appraisals to federally regulated lenders.
Some states require appraisers to be licensed or certified to provide appraisals for other parties as well. To become licensed or certified, you
must pass an examination that is administered by your state's appraisal board. The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of The Appraisal
Foundation is authorized by Congress to establish the minimum requirements for Certified General Real Property Appraiser and Certified
Residential Real Property Appraiser classifications.
