Rick Riddle Fort Worth RealtorDate : Apr-2014 "Rick was wonderful to work with. We had almost closed on the house once when the title company and then the mortgage broker backed out. This was a lake house and the type of lot lease caused many problems and Rick made numerous pone calls to determine what all we needed to have done and then to find a new title company and lender that understood the lake property we were purchasing. He was successful and we closed finally. It was a long road and stressful, but Rick never lacked in professionalism and timely communications. Cannot believe he did not jump ship at some point and am so glad that he did not. He has earned our respect and recommendation." - Steve Dalton Lake Weatherford

Amelia made my experience as a first time home buyer a good one as it was very smooth and came with very little problems. I would recommend Amelia Chappel! - Jenn N. & West Hollow

Whenever you buy, sell or refinance a home, an appraisal will be a part of the requirements. You may think this is just a way to assign value to your home, but there's more to it than just assigning value. Here are a few things you should know about appraisals.

Appraisals have more than one Purpose

Appraisals can be used for more than just assigning value to a home for a mortgage or purchase. They can also be used to determine your property taxes, how much insurance you need and the sales price of your homes.

It's important to know that appraisals are not the same thing as a CMA or competitive market analysis. Real Estate agents may us a CMA to figure out the sales price, but a buyer will ask for an appraisal before purchasing the home.
