Hi,

My house is actually in Cedar Park, a suburb of Austin. Would anyone be able to recommend appaisers that they know provide solid, realistic appraisals?

Thanks in advance for any help!

The best appraiser I knew in Austin died recently, so I can't give a specific name. However, I would go to the Appraisal Institute or NAIFA websites and check for appraisers in the area, then call them. Call early or late - they're generally out in the field. Don't call an MAI, they don't do residential work.

Ask them if they work your area, some will, some won't. They should be reasonably specific about your fee. Also, ask them about different forms and types of appraisals. You may only need a 2055 as opposed to a 1004. Also ask time frames, etc. Don't ask them what they think your house is worth -- they won't know until they complete the report.

Finally, hire the one you're comfortable with. Good luck

RS,

Thanks for the reply, I'll definitely follow it if I can't get any direct referrals. In that case, it will be very, very helpful!

If anyone has any direct referrals of people they know to be realistic and accurate, I would still appreciate that info too.

Sincerely,
Scott
