How Long Does a Home Appraisal Take?

Curious about how long it takes to get a house appraisal?

The length of time to complete a house appraisal can vary based on several factors.

Generally speaking, a standard appraisal will be completed within 48 hours after the on-site visit.

Factors that determine appraisal completion time 

  • Property size and complexity
    The size and complexity of a property significantly impact the appraisal timeline. Larger homes, especially those with unique features, may require additional time for evaluation.

  • Availability of comparable sales 
    The appraiser needs to research recent sales of similar homes in the surrounding neighborhood. If this data is difficult to come by, the appraisal may take longer.

  • Appraiser experience and qualifications
    Additionally, the appraiser’s experience and qualifications play a vital role. Metrowide Appraisals has certified appraisers with years of professional expertise with divorce and estate appraisals. This helps to expedite the process by efficiently identifying key property features and analyzing comparable sales data.

Home Appraisal Process

The appraisal process involves a thorough  inspection of the property, both inside and out. This includes evaluating the home’s condition and any unique features, along with measurements of living space and a review of the property’s systems.

Post-inspection, the appraiser researches comparable sales to determine the fair market value. This involves a detailed analysis of recent sales of similar homes in the neighborhood, factoring in size, age, condition, and location.
