If you are planning to buy property, most lenders will require an appraisal. An appraisal is used to ensure the property for which they are lending has enough value to mitigate their risk. An appraisal will also be required if you are refinancing your property.
If you are involved in a legal dispute over the market value of a piece of real estate, you will be required to produce an appraisal report that meets the appraisal requirements outlined by the Appraisal Institute of Canada.
A marketing/listing appraisal reveals the “most probable selling price” of a home and provides information on the property, recent sales and active listings in the area. If you are a buyer, a marketing/listing appraisal can increase your negotiating power. If you are the seller, this assessment will give you a realistic expectation of what the sale price will be.
At times when a company or national agency relocates an employee, they may guarantee a specific sale price for that employee’s current primary residence. A relocation appraisal will be used to determine the promised price.

“I just wanted to endorse a great appraiser, Adam Lawrenson. I had a situation last Saturday at 11:30 am; I was in a bid and I needed an appraiser to go do an appraisal at 1:00 pm that same day. I called Adam and he was available for me right there and then. Since that time, I have given him three other appraisal orders and has been wonderful. He is fast, he is courteous, and most importantly, he is a true professional. The quality of his work has been so far amazing. He is on the list of most of our lenders. If you need an opinion on a property, he is there to let you know if the deal is doable or not. And if it is doable, he will go and make it happen for you wherever it is and whenever you need it in the lower mainland. Thank you, Adam, for all your hard work for me this week.”
Bernadette Laxamana, Xeva Mortgages

“I just wanted to send off a testimonial to thank you for doing a great job on the recent appraisal services that you provided. I appreciate that you were available to talk to me on the phone before I submitted the request. Your services were fast (booked the appointment to see the subject property the next day) and report the next day! The report you provided was professional and detailed. Of course, I will be contacting Adlaw Appraisals in the very near future for my next appraisal request.”
Karen Boies, DLC City Wide Mortgage Services
“We first used Adam when he was referred to us by another mortgage broker. We continued to use Adam because his appraisals were accurate and timely. He was always available to answer questions on a file or do a bit of background work before an appraisal was ordered. We consistently recommend Adam to other mortgage brokers within the Mortgage Alliance Family.”
