Do I Need An Appraisal?

Master Appraisal Services services meet or exceed Arizona's guidelines and the Uniform Standards of Professional Practice that establishes appraisal standards on a federal level.

A home is often the single, largest financial asset anybody owns. Knowing its true value means you can make the right financial decisions. If you're selling your home, an appraisal helps you set the most appropriate value. If you're buying, it makes sure you don't overpay. If you're engaged in an estate settlement or divorce, it ensures that property is divided fairly.

A few other reasons for ordering an appraisal report include:

  • To obtain a loan
  • If you would like to lower your property tax burden
  • To establish the replacement cost of PMI
  • To fight high property taxes
  • To settle an estate
  • To offer you an edge when purchasing real estate
  • To find a reasonable sales price when selling real estate
  • To defend your rights in a condemnation case
  • Government agencies such as the IRS need an appraisal on every property

What Does The Home Appraisal Contain?

Each report reflects a credible estimate of value and must identify the following:

  • The client and other intended users
  • The intended use of the report
  • The purpose of the assignment
  • The type of value reported and the definition of the value reported
  • The effective date of the appraiser's opinions and conclusions
  • Relevant property characteristics, including location attributes, physical attributes, legal attributes, economic attributes, the real property interest valued, and Non real estate items included in the appraisal, such as personal property, including trade fixtures and intangible items
  • All known: easements, restrictions, encumbrances, leases, reservations, covenants, contracts, declarations, special assessments, ordinances, and other items of a similar nature
