Appraisal or Appraised Value
January 19, 2023
The appraised value of a home is an evaluation of the value of a property based on a specific point in time. This evaluation is performed by a professional appraiser during the origination of the mortgage process. Oftentimes, the appraiser is chosen by the lender but is often paid for by the borrower.
