How is a home appraisal done by a chartered or home appraiser?

You should establish the purpose of the appraisal, cost of the valuation, agree on the services required, choose a type of report and the time required to produce the detailed report.

Then, the home appraiser will visit your property to learn about some elements:

  • The general condition of the house
  • The dimensions
  • The type of materials present
  • The layout
  • etc.

He will then inquire about property market values as well as by-laws, taxes and municipal services.

After collecting all the information relevant to the valuation of your home, the real estate appraiser will proceed with the analysis of the properties that have been sold recently, “determination of the age of the building and the estimated longevity, residual productivity of the components”, etc.

The final step will be to estimate the actual market value of the property taking into account all the elements mentioned above as well as others that might be relevant, depending on the situation.
