What is an appraisal?

In real estate, an appraisal is an estimate or determination of value of real property.

A real estate appraisal is typically conducted by a licensed or certified real estate appraiser. Real estate appraisers may specialize by property type or market.

The need for a real estate appraisal can arise in a variety of situations. Lenders may require an appraisal before lending on a property which occurs when a buyer borrows to purchase real estate, or an existing owner wishes to refinance a property.

Other situations that may require an appraisal include establishing a value to reassess a property's tax liability, or settling disputes and estates.
