If you worked with appraisers ten years ago, you know how much technology has changed since then. What you might not realize is that there have been many developments in technology and e-commerce that have improved turnaround
times on appraisal assignments. We’re taking advantage of them. Are you taking advantage of every opportunity you have to speed up the process? Here are some suggestions.
Hearing from you — someone they’ve been working with on their loan — a little bit about the appraisal process, who we are, and especially that dusting and polishing won’t make it more likely their sale will close, can go a long way toward trimming the time
it takes to inspect a home. Please feel free to point them to this website, where we have many pages of information for homeowners as well as others about the appraisal process. Encourage them to call us if they want to familiarize themselves with our staff
and services. And tell them it’s in their interest to set the appointment as quickly as possible!
