What to Do When Your House Doesn’t Appraise

Imagine doing all your repair costs homework, buying a property at the right price, putting a lot of effort into managing the renovation project conscientiously…..and then having the sale of your property fall thru due to a low appraisal. There’s not many things that are more frustrating than that for a real estate investor.

Nothing you can do but lower the price and give away some of your hard-earned profit right?  Not necessarily.


Home AppraisalTom Horn, an appraiser from Birmingham Alabama, recently added a great post to his blog: “What to do when the house doesn’t appraise.”  In it, he provides a step by step process for dealing with low appraisals including revealing 5 common appraisal errors to look for.


Tom’s blog also includes a lot other great information like “5 things the agent (or real estate investor owner) can share with the appraiser to help with the appraisal.”


Investing a little time reading these blog posts will be well worth it in the event you ever run into appraisal value issues!
