Making Your Offer Standout With an Appraisal Addendum
FRONT PORCH REALTY agent, Donya Clark
and FRONT PORCH REALTY Owner and Broker-in-charge, Laura Moody
, recently had a discussion about appraisal addendums and how they've become quite important when putting in an offer. The market is tough for our buyers right now and FRONT PORCH REALTY agents understand the challenges of putting in a winning offer!
Multiple offers are being submitted for homes these days, often at sales prices much higher than what we believe the homes will appraise for. The buyer's lender will NOT loan more money than the value of the home is worth and this is determined by a licensed real estate appraiser. To assure the sellers that you will not use a low appraisal to try and re-negotiate your terms, an APPRAISAL ADDENDUM can be added to the Offer To Purchase. This attorney written addendum lets the homeowner know the buyer is willing to pay their offer price regardless of what the home appraises for. In other words, the buyer has the cash difference available to bring to closing if the appraised value ends up coming in less than their offered price.
