The Appraisal Process includes the following:

Comparable Sale Selection and Adjustments- The appraiser would do a thorough market analysis of recently sold sales and available listings. 4 Comparable sales would then be chosen which are the mot similar to the subject. Adjustments would then be made for various discrepancies which include, Square footage, lot size, age, condition, room count(bed/bath), basement, heating/cooling, garage, amenities, location, style, view, obsolescence etc. The appraiser would also analyze recent market trends and determine if the subject is in a declining, stable or increasing market and then make the appropriate "time" adjustments.
Final Reconciliation- The appraiser would then carefully analyze the pre/post adjusted sales price of the comparable(s) determine which sale(s) deserve most weight, to give the subject its most appropriate informed value.
