REASONS PEOPLE GET AN APPRAISAL IN INDIANA
Quite simply, anytime someone buys or sells their home in Indiana and needs to
borrow money to pay at least some portion of their mortgage, the
lender typically will require an appraisal from a licensed Indiana
real estate appraiser. An appraisal is
simply a report containing a written description of your home and
the appraiser's opinion, or estimate, of the market value of the property
you are purchasing. This is the lender's way of determining
how much money to lend on a property, using the property as
collateral. In the unlikely event that the lender will have to
foreclose on the loan and re-sell the property, the lender, quite
understandably, wants to make sure (before loaning any money) that
they have established the basis of their investment ahead of time.
HOW THE INDIANA HOMEOWNER ENDS UP BENEFITING FROM AN APPRAISER
Buying a home can be quite confusing when you don't do it everyday.
Your lender deals with real estate professionals who do nothing but
buy, sell, and estimate values for homes like yours every day.
They have relationships with professionals (appraisers) that they
know they can trust to estimate their collateral basis. If your lender
is comfortable loaning a large sum of money to you in order for you
to buy the property, you too should sleep better knowing that in the
unlikely event of a catastrophic job loss or sickness for example,
you will most likely be able to sell your way out of the property (mortgage)
for an amount somewhere in the range of what you purchased it for,
you take pride in and care for your property, and that property
values in your market area do not decline after you purchase your
home. Buying your home also tends to become emotional and it
is easy to offer too much money for a property based on things other
than historical market facts and projected future trends. A professional appraisal report performed
by a qualified Indiana real estate appraiser can provide you with an
objective, third party opinion of a property's current market value.
REFINANCE OR GET A HOME EQUITY LOAN
If you need to consolidate bills, have college tuition to pay, or
just want to tap into the equity of your home, you'll need a new
loan, which oftentimes in Indiana requires a new appraisal of the property.
Once again, the appraisal is for your lender to establish an amount
to loan that makes sense using the property as collateral.
WHY DO I NEED A NEW APPRAISAL
Real estate market and property conditions in Indiana as well as the
rest of the country are dynamic in nature and the value
of your home most likely will fluctuate with market, economic,
demographic, and social trends.
