When True Real Estate Property Appraisals Count

During my early days as a real estate sales associate (circa 1981), the broker with whom I was associated was very fond of “old adages” and the historical aspect of real estate. As a newcomer to the business of real estate sales my thirst for knowledge was a leading factor in me clinging to every word (pearl of wisdom) uttered by the broker. One of those utterances was regarding a true appraisal.

He would often say that “the truest definition of an appraisal is what a “willing” buyer is willing to pay and a willing seller is “willing” to sell for”. This truest of true definition helped guide my own approach to doing business as a real estate agent in later years. Though, in the early days, I was unsure how much this “truest” definition was relied upon by appraisers who actually evaluated the homes we were selling, it was a lesson soon learned.

But first a two-part question: Does the data from an “all-cash” sale create a comparable for future sales of similar homes in the same community/neighborhood – and can that comparable be used by the lender’s appraiser to support a given value in his/her report? Answering no would be an indication that any “all-cash” sale comparable is to be ignored by property appraisers and therefore has no impact on future home values within the same neighborhood.

A “yes” answer would permit the use of these “all-cash” sale comparables in the appraisal reports thereby helping the appraiser to make neccessary adjustments in his final value because, not only is an appraisal based on the professional opinion of the appraiser, it must also reflect all recent sales activity in the area in which the subject property is located. Therefore any “all-cash” sales that were consummated within 3 to 6 months of the new sale must be taken into consideration, because they also have an impact on the community.

Overall, the appraisal will lead to the conclusion of what the market value is. If the market price can not be defined easily, then someone can look at the different parts of the property and determine what they believe the market price should be. Usually, this will be done by an inspector looking at the various mechanics that may have been swept underneath the rug. But this done ONLY in the absence of usable market data (prior sales activity).

An appraisal is a necessary requirement when a home is being sold and the buyer is obtaining financing from a bank or mortgage lender. The appraiser may use several external resources and definitions of what market value may include in relation to the opinion being made in order to determine the value of a home. When getting an appraisal, you can expect that the estimates will be based around various factors that are related to the particular market area at that time.

Instead of just examining the parts of the property, an appraiser will also examine the neighborhood and see what everything else is worth in relation to the property. So by appraising a property, you will know how much your home is worth in relation to your own needs as they relate to that property, as well as in relation to everything around it. Observing the standards that exist both inside and outside, you will have the knowledge you need to determine when the timing is right to put your home on the market.

What differentiates the “all-cash” property sale from a real estate sale that is financed by a bank/mortgage lender can be a number of factors, but two of the most important of those factors are: One, the lack of a “mortgage clause” in the contract and two, the absence of a bank-ordered certified property appraisal. This does not mean however, that private deal made between a willing seller and buyer in good faith should be ignored or even discounted.

Making Your For-Sale Home Mortgage-Ready

What do buyers need when they plan to buy a home? The fact is that there are many aspects one needs to consider when buying or selling a home. From the seller’s point of view, there are some basic home selling rules which must be taken into consideration with the prevailing thought that financing terms and buyer qualification for a mortgage is going to be key factors in getting your property sold. With that in mind you, the seller, can take steps to facilitate the sale by doing the following:

1) Preparing it for the appraisal inspection or paying for a FHA (Federal Housing Administration) appraisal to be done. This type of appraisal is good for 4 months and must be used by your FHA buyer; and FHA buyers are greater in number since 2009 than any other lender-financed group of buyers, including PMI-qualified buyers, conventional-qualified buyers, VA-qualified buyers and buyers with their own or private financing. You shouldn’t be overly concerned with laying out the appraisal fee because by doing so you’ll help to reduce processing time as well as setting the right price for the property. Chances are you’ll be reimburse by the buyer anyway.

2) You should be an informative seller. You could put a “Home for Sale” sign in your front yard which includes your phone number and possibly your email address, if you have one, so that a buyer can contact you. This step requires you to devote specific hours of your day to handle the incoming calls or returning phone calls to prospective buyers; making available a property profile which outlines the description of your property, the property size (interior square footage), lot size, neighborhood amenities and a few photos of the house (interior & exterior).

3) Bear in mind that prospective buyers will have done their own research, and you should therefore be as prepared as you can be; but you are more of an expert about your own property than anyone else and as long as your expertise is properly presented to all concerned, including the FHA appraiser, so that they have a clear understanding of exactly what you are offering for sale, your work will certainly be rewarded. By taking performing these actions you would also convey to the buyer your commitment to delivering a well-prepared and most complete picture of the home which may in fact be the one s/he chooses.

Whatever you have heard about physical condition, curb appeal and “squeaky clean” appearance being among the most important things to work on in order to enhance the saleability of your home is probably true. You can do no wrong by improving or enhancing the appeal of your property’s interior and exterior. Just to make it beautiful, tidy, and fresh even if changing the color of your home is to be considered. You’ve probably heard the saying “get your buyer in the right mood”. One way to do this is by creating a cozy environment in your home. What do I mean by “cozy environment”? Fresh air, clean surroundings, fresh odor, and most importantly a home-like atmosphere. Just make a buyer feel like s/he is already at home sweet home.

If you have taken all of the above steps, when you get down on the negotiation, you’d be in a position to offer a high quality product to your buying market, because you know what your market is comprised of (FHA-qualified buyers), you should be a great negotiator based on the preparation that went into the project up to this point. You don’t have to be a broker or a lender or emulate either. Just be yourself – the expert on your own home – and follow your own instincts which are based on the many years you’ve owned the home. Most importantly, be honest with yourself as well as with your buyer(s) and others with whom you come in contact during the process and you should have no problem selling your home at a satisfactory price.

If the government can’t run business, how come businesses always run to the government for a bailout when it runs into trouble? FHA-insured mortgages, government run for 75 years. Lest we forget?

As of July 1, 2009 a recent housing initiative was expanded to allow Las Vegas borrowers who are up to 125% underwater on their mortgages to seek mortgage refinancing. Thanks to the Making Home Affordable program!
