New York’s Capital Region Home Valuation Source serving Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, Rensselaer and Washington Counties
Year after year, thousands of people in New York purchase, sell or refinance their home. Many of these transactions contain a simple line item for an appraisal. While there are a developing number of automated home valuation methods that might appear more prudent than an appraisal, the majority of lenders still want a local expert because the stakes are so high. You might believe that getting a mortgage is the only reason to get an appraisal, but there are additional situations when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might come in handy.
