For Sale By Owner Appraisals

How will you price it?

Do you know what is happening in the market?

Do you know what is happening in the Micro Market?

Do you know what homes are your competition?

What features bring the most value?

Do you know how to respond to questions from buyers about value?

Speaking to Real Estate Agents at Keller Williams Pacific Estates – Long Beach

Speaking to RE agents in long Beach

I recently had the pleaseure to speak to agents at Keller Williams Pacific Estates office in Long Beach.

I brought them up to speed on the what lenders are requiring appraisers to do. How to pick comparables, what a FHA inspection is comprised of, and most important, “that they can talk to appraisers.

We then did Q&A for about a half hour.

If you would like me to come talk to your office, please call me 562-673-1138

FHA Appraisal Inspection and Honesty in a R.E. Transaction

Honesty in a Real Estate Transaction            

I recently did a FHA Appraisal in Long Beach. I found a few things wrong. When I looked under the house, I saw jacks support the floor. This would defiantly affect the livability and Structural Soundness of the house.

The most interesting part was that the seller was hoping I would not see this. Also the MLS listing made no mention of the home needing repairs. 

This makes question the honesty of the seller and the agent. What about disclosure? Had this sold and the agent never mentions this, then the new owner found out, the agent could be sued. The most important part was if the Agent and Seller had hired me to a do a PRE-FHA Appraisal Inspection, I would have told them everything that needed to be addressed before the appraiser comes out. This would have saved a transaction. The seller would be happy and the agent would be happy.

If you would like to know more about a Pre-FHA Appraisal Inspection, please call me at 562-673-1138
