Do appraisers look at paint?

Hi Elliott, thanks for your comment. But I'm NOT preparing a PAREA course.

I'm a blogger and I write topics regarding the real estate industry. (I also disclose that in the signature section.)

I'm just trying to figure out what kind of things do appraisers check when they are inspecting a property. But thank you for the opportunity to let me clear this.
Paint color not so much unless it is very atypical. If home was built in or prior to 1978, I put in a lead based paint statement.

I thought post was in regard to condition.
It's difficult to determine if paint on wall has lead unless tested.
Regarding color, isn't that subjective. I'd seen pink, blue, and murals in wall. Those can be easily painted over.

The only paint that matters is the color of the paint on the tesla. I so confuse the other day, there was an Aston Martin and a Dodge mini van in the driveway. Do they cancel each other out? Later the owner told me the mini van has the cleaning lady's. Now I know how to adjust.

Speaking of cleaning lady, when I was appraising the appraiser's house, he had two cleaning ladies there.
He must be doing well since he has no time to clean.
