Communication is something we take seriously at Hill Appraisal Associates. When working through the appraisal process, we will maintain communication to make sure you get the most out of the experience.
DEVELOP SCOPE OF WORKThe appraiser will interview the client to collect pertinent information to develop scope of work. An appraisal engagement agreement will be written up and signed by both the appraiser and the client.
COLLECT DATAThe appraiser will then spend time collecting sales and market data in addition to subject property data.
INSPECT PROPERTYThe appraiser and client will schedule an inspection and determine who will be meeting the appraiser at the property. At the inspection the appraiser will take notes, tour the property, and photograph buildings and land.
DATA ANALYSISThe appraiser will then analyze all data collected for the subject, market and sales.
DETERMINE VALUEFrom this analysis the appraiser will conclude a final value for the subject property.
APPRAISAL REPORTThe appraiser will write up their method, analyzed data and conclusions to provide a report for the client.
DELIVER REPORTOnce completed, the appraiser will deliver the final report to the client via delivery method (emailed PDF or mailed paper copy) discussed in the appraisal engagement agreement. Once the report is delivered, the client is welcomed to ask follow-up questions to help clarify any information within the report.
