Construction Loans ~ Which are best?

There are two types of construction loans used by homeowners;
1. One-time-close loans
2. Two-time-close loans

Things to Consider When Challenging Appraisals

I recently received a call from a Keller Williams agent seeking insight into how to rebut an appraisal on a home in Roswell.  The appraisal had come in below the contract price, and her clients, the sellers were unwilling to adjust the price to the appraised value.   In an appreciating market where inventory is low, and Buyers are offering more than list price to insure that their offers are accepted, elevated values will often times need to be supported during the appraisal process.

Below is an appraisal rebuttal for a home in Roswell that specifically addresses the appraiser’s comments and approaches to the appraisal.
