Be the Appraiser’s Best Friend, meet them at the site, with copies of important material. Hand pick the sales that might not be found. Find Two supporting sales less than 90 days old. Email full print outs to him ahead of time, discuss Comps at the site.
4. Extend Time to Close, Just In Case
It allows you to remain in control and in the drivers seat.Expect there to be snags and delays, build them into the time table.
Always develop a backup plan, in case the Appraisal comes back too low. Bigger Down payment? Walk Away? Re-Negotiate? What will you do?
