What is an Appraisal?

A real estate appraisal, property valuation or land valuation is the unbiased assessment of developing a professional opinion on a particular value via analysis of real property, usually in order to establish its Fair Market Value– or sometimes conducted to check for support of sales price, loan value, investment value, etc. Appraisal reports are an integral part of most real estate transactions and 

form the basis for mortgage loans, settling estates and divorces, taxation, and so on. They can include recent sales information for similar properties, the current condition of the property, and the location of the property, i.e., insight as to how the neighborhood impacts the property’s value.
