What to Expect at Your Appraisal Appointment

Townsend Appraisals

After we say hello, we measure the exterior of your home and draw a diagram of the exterior walls.  We photograph the front, rear and street scene of your home, and possibly other amenities such as a view, pool, decking, patio, landscaping, etc.

Once inside, we measure the garage (if it is attached) and indicate where rooms are located on the diagram we have drawn.  Typically, we do not measure interior walls.  We do take interior photographs, primarily of the the living room, kitchen, baths, and may take a photograph of every room in the house.

We note the following: flooring materials used throughout, tub/shower surround materials, any significant deferred maintenance (ceiling leaks, very old roofs, torn carpet, etc.)  We will ask you if there is anything you would like to tell us about your home.

A typical appointment takes between 15 – 45 minutes, depending on the complexity of your house.
