An appraiser will complete a full exterior and interior inspection of the property. This involves taking measurements, photos of each room and may take 20-40 minutes to complete. An appraiser may request the following information: lease or rental information, a list of recent updates or renovations, strata fees, etc. The property does not need to be professionally cleaned but it is important for the appraiser to move easily throughout the home and take photos that accurately depict the quality and condition of the property. To ensure a quick and seamless inspection please: have all rooms, suites and outbuildings accessible, open blinds and turn on all the lights, have the electrical panel and heating system accessible, and have any aggressive pets put aside for the duration of the site visit.
