Appraiser Roster

Anytime you buy or sell real estate, you need a property appraisal. The primary purpose is to find out exactly how much your property is worth.appraiser Banks and similar lending companies also require it, before a buyer can obtain a mortgage.

An appraisal develops an "educated and trained opinion" on the value of the property. It also, in some circumstances, may ascertain the best use of the property, garnering the best selling price. For example, a long-time residential property may be in an area that has been rezoned for limited commerce, which could potentially bring in a higher sales price than marketing the real estate to potential residential buyers.

The percentage of home buyers who could afford to purchase a median-priced, existing single-family home in California in second-quarter 2017 fell to 29 percent, down from 32 percent in the first quarter of 2017 and down from 31 percent in the second quarter a year ago, according to C.A.R.’s Traditional Housing Affordability Index (HAI). This is the 17th consecutive quarter that the index has been below 40 percent and the lowest since third-quarter 2015. California’s housing affordability index hit a peak of 56 percent in the first quarter of 2012.
