I am reviewing an appraisal, and need help on some abbreviations used in the report.

In fence/pool etc the abbrev. WPT is there. What does that mean?

Under appliances:

DW = Dishwasher
HP = ?
DP = ?
Gdo = ?

Thanks for your help!

WPT
Whirlpool Tub?? That'd be my guess.

DP
I would have said disposal. But that could be Gdo like Pam said.


HP
Heat pump.

There are several different ways to tell if the appraisal is a bad appraisal. Seems to me, that if the reader has to second guess what the writer was trying to say, this a bad appraisal.m Sure hope the rest of the report than this.

Have you seen anything about an IV yet?

I think that would stand for Inflated Value

Damon, "Inflated Value" is a lenderís term. That is NOT recognized in the appraiser's world. We use "highest and best value" to describe those appraisal practices.
