A Real Estate Appraisal is a comprehensive report detailing the value of a Real Estate Property. Appraisal Reports examine many factors that influence the value of a property, to come up with an opinion of property worth.
More often than not, you will be instructed by a banker or lender to receive an appraisal as a prerequisite for monetary lending or a mortgage. Appraisals are often required before bank loans for renovation purposes. If you are still unsure if you require an appraisal, the Our Services section of our website features a comprehensive list of appraisal purposes.

A Home Appraisal from Benchmark Real Estate Appraisals provides you with a comprehensive report which analyzes your property and provides you with an accurate estimation of value in current market conditions. In general, a typical appraisal looks at the size and location of the home, the number of rooms as well as the types of upgrades in the home, and encompasses several other factors to come up with a numeric value. A Home Inspection gives you information regarding the structural integrity of the home, the condition of plumbing and electrical within the home, and factors of that nature. A Home Inspection DOES NOT provide you with an estimation of current market value.
A Home Appraisal will give you an accurate estimation of the current market value of a home. A Realtor’s valuation will give you an estimate that will sell your house quickly. Often times a fair market price and a realtors valuation differ substantially; and a home priced at market value tends to sell quickly anyways.
