What to Expect in Your Appraisal

homeWhat to Expect in Your Appraisal

Once you order an appraisal from Long Island Appraisals you will get the following in a signed appraisal report, in PDF format:

  • Appraisal Form (Depending on property type)
  • Exterior & Interior Photos of the subject
  • At Least 3 Closed Comparable Sales
  • Comparable Photos
  • Building Sketch
  • Location Map

Your home will be valuated using the Sales Comparison Approach in which we will use 3 closed sales.  In most cases, they will be dated within 1 year of the date of valuation and located within 1 mile of the subject property. We will make various adjustments for any discrepancies between your property and the comparable property. Some cause for adjustments may include:

  • Location (Busy Road, School, Commercial, etc.)
  • Site Size
  • Building Square Footage
  • Bedroom/Bathroom Count
  • Basement Size and Finishing
  • Amenities (Porch, Patio, Deck, CAC, F/P, Pool, Tennis Court, etc.)
  • Construction (Brick vs Frame, Attached vs Detached vs Semi-Attached)
  • Age
  • Condition
  • Garage Size

Once the adjustments have been made, the value that is most appropriate for your property is selected based on the adjusted values of the comparables. When doing this it is possible to give more weight to one sale over another depending on comparability.
