Kudos to Florida REALTOR® magazine for its substantive look at how to deal with appraisal issues that come up during a sale. The article quotes National Association of REALTORS® Real Estate Valuation Committee member Francois “Frank” Gregoire. Gregoire told Florida REALTOR®’s Richard Westlund that salespeople can be a valued source of information. “As soon as a property is under contract, start gathering information to support the sales price. Be sure to include information that may not be readily available from other sources, such as offers and how quickly the property went under contract,” he said in the article.
The article also cites the new suite of appraiser tools available to NAR members through the Realtors Property Resource®. To learn more about RPR and its use in appraisals, visit: http://blog.narrpr.com/appraisers/.
