Tips For Choosing a Real Estate Appraiser

Whether you’re investigating the value of your own property, the potential of an investment property or trying to obtain financing for a home, you’ll need the services of a certified real estate appraiser. If you’re trying to hunt down the value of a particular property and need to hire a real estate appraiser, keep reading for some tips on how to locate a quality person.

1. Ask your Bank

Because most lenders require proof of the value of a property before they will finance its purchase, they can often recommend trusted appraisers that they work with on a frequent basis.

If you trust your bank or lender, ask your mortgage agent for an appraiser recommendation.

2. Check with your Real Estate Agent

Your real estate agent is there to help you make this sale happen. Since they work in the business, they deal with appraisals and appraisers every day. Likely, your agent will be able to recommend a number of appraisers that they work with and trust.

3. Opt for Experience

The value of a home, whether you’re buying or setting an asking price, is going to depend largely on the appraiser’s recommendation and appraisal. Hiring the wrong appraiser or an inexperienced person could cost you a lot of money, whether you set the asking price for your house too low or you buy a home that’s simply not worth its stated value.

When hiring a home appraiser, look for experience and good references, not the cheapest price.

4. Ask Family and Friends

Some of the best recommendations come from our trusted friends and families, so ask around. If a member of your family or circle of friends has recently purchased a home, ask them about their appraiser and whether they would recommend them.

When hiring a service provider on a recommendation, always mention that you were referred to their business and who gave the referral. Referral-based business can often go a lot smoother than a cold call.

5. Check Online Customer Reviews

Many consumer review sites, like Yelp.com, let customers review and rate service providers and businesses in their area. These sites let you read actual customer reviews that include the good, the bad and the ugly about a particular business. So, before you hire, check online for customer reviews and comments.

Hiring a real estate appraiser is necessary, but also easier than it sounds. To get the best results, ask your bank, real estate agent and family and friends for recommendations. Finally, remember to opt for experience and check available customer reviews.

On the 17th of May, we were invited to speak about Blockchain and Crypto at an event by Ondernemen in Bedrijf and Pakhuis met Pit. During this day we shared an advanced workshop on Blockchain and Crypto. The main topic that we spoke about was “The impact of Blockchain”, Ondernemen in Bedrijf has hosted multiple sessions about Blockchain and Crypto at different locations in the Netherlands. According to several specialists, Blockchain will change the world like the Internet has done.

There is a lot being written about blockchains, bitcoin, and related technologies, and for many real estate professionals, this is part of a brave, new, confusing world of technology. Like the original internet, the blockchain is a revolution in technology that will touch all people and all businesses. So people are paying attention, but many still don’t understand what the blockchain is.

Imagine that you and your best friend Bob are standing on a stage in an auditorium, and there are 1,000 people in the audience. In front of these 1,000 people, you hand your car keys to Bob, and Bob hands you his watch. You declare, “Bob, you now own my car.”

Bob declares back to you, “You now own my watch.” There are 1,000 witnesses who can each declare, without doubt, that your car now belongs to Bob, and the watch belongs to you. If anyone in the audience later tells a conflicting account of who owns the car or the watch, the other 999 people will refute it. And, if you take a spare set of your keys and try to give that same car to someone else, the 1,000 audience members will confirm that Bob owns the car, as each of them witnessed the “transaction.” This is the essence of how the blockchain works.

WordPress, IDX and Real Estate

Real estate agents today face an ever changing playing field when it comes to getting their name out in-front of buyers. In-fact in just the last two years the landscape changed dramatically as more and more agents realized the importance of a website that has all of the robust features of IDX as well as features of a full Content Management System” (CMS).

And if you are successful at getting your name out to the buyers online, it is inherently more important that such people return to continue their search, save properties, compare, and subscribe to your daily updates.

With statistics showing that over 80% of home buyers start their search online it is imperative that agents offer engaging, factual and informative content that the buyer is looking for, but also to go beyond the public stats. Market analysis, local schools, area shopping, trends, etc., etc. are the norm on most real estate sites and show you are up-to-speed in gathering and copying information. I am referring to that extra “blast” that you can do to separate you personally out from competitors and establish yourself as an expert in your area.

A CMS allows you to keep your name out in front of potential clients by providing valuable information. Has there been news about a new condominium development in your area? A new state or federal program? Write about it or comment on it on your website with a reference link to the main article. It does not necessarily have to be local. Your keeping up-to-speed with both local and national real estate markets. Your commenting and relating this news to your local market. (An entire book can be written on the benefits of writing articles, posting on blogs, and SEO. I will be getting more in-depth on these subjects in future articles.)

In order to create and easily manage a real estate CMS website you should at take a look at WordPress. WordPress started out as a blogging system and has since became a powerful publishing platform. In fact, many newspapers and magazines have turned to WordPress for their online news portals and it is my choice for every website I build. It is simple to learn, has a fantastic community of developers, an array of plug-ins to accomplish nearly any task, and is completely customizable. Also, it’s free!

Once you realize the benefits of a WordPress powered website, you will need to look at integrating IDX into your site. There are many third party companies that provide integration services or you can contact your local Board of Realtors and find out what programs they offer. Most services provided by your local board will require some scripting experience.

Steps to take:

1) Decide on whether you want a CMS and if so, a customized theme (website) or a generic theme from the WordPress vault. There are 100’s of themes available. Some are free some are for a fee. Most of these themes will need customization to offer the greatest results for a real estate agent.

2) Find out from your local Real Estate Board what type of MLS they offer. If it is not robust enough or requires programmer to set-up, consider a third party IDX set-up.

3) Maybe this should be first – talk with a WordPress consultant for ideas and to get a better understanding of what WordPress can offer you.
