Your Home’s External Factors

Appraisal reports come in a variety of forms, but a standard appraisal report generally begins with considering the external facts of your home, including your neighborhood boundaries, your school district, the view amenity of your home, the type and condition of surrounding properties, and other external factors. In addition, however, other external characteristics are carefully evaluated, including:

  • The type of neighborhood (for example, urban, rural, or suburban)
  • The percentage of land currently in use in the neighborhood
  • Zoning classifications
  • Lot size and shape
  • Whether the property has public utilities
  • The driveway’s surface and any car storage facilities

Your Home’s Internal Factors

In addition to your home’s exterior considerations, its internal specifications are also critical to the appraisal. The components that are most important include:

  • Your home’s square footage
  • The total number of rooms, in particular, the number of bathrooms and bedrooms
  • Upgrades/renovation to your home
  • Special features
  • Your home’s foundation type
  • The fabrication of the walls, floors, and windows
  • Whether the basement is full or partial

The General Condition of Your Home

The general condition of your home also plays an important role in its valuation. In general, our appraisers will carefully evaluate:

  • The materials used in and the condition of your foundation, interior and exterior walls, roof, gutters, and downspouts
  • The materials used in and the condition of your floors, walls, and trim
  • Any adverse conditions or deficiencies that affect the structural integrity or livability of your home
  • The quality of your home’s general maintenance and upkeep

All of this and more goes into obtaining a credible home appraisal that can withstand careful scrutiny and that you can be confident reflects your property’s market value.
