We begin with a consultation interview to determine appraisal goals. Once this is done, we develop a course of action that includes timeline, pricing and deliverables. A signed agreement along with a 50% deposit of total fee is required to begin appraisal work. Next the on-site inspection date is scheduled.
After inspection is completed, extensive research to determine value for the intended use of the appraisal begins. Final payment due upon completion of appraisal report. Report is sent electronically to client.
Note: Photographic inspections can also be done when in-person is not an option.
