Ottawa Real Estate appraisers in Ottawa generally work for banks and other lenders to gain an in-depth knowledge of the condition, location, amenities and market value of a specific home in Ottawa they are about to underwrite a loan for.
Lenders are careful to offer money on homes with good potential market value that they can easily sell in case the home Buyer defaults in his payments. An appraiser looks at the neighbourhood and the house in particular being purchased. They look at, record and analyze the age, size, style, and condition of the house and compare it to other homes on the market in the same general area. Further they may look at the age and condition of the operating systems such as, the heating, air conditioning and electric systems and see if they are in good working order. They analyze the neighbourhood and the location of the Ottawa home in the area. Does it back directly into another property or a well taken care of park? Are there amenities close by such as schools, shopping, public transportation, community centres among other establishments? How safe is the area?
These are but some of the aspects an appraiser will look for and make a report for the lender to make a decision regarding financing a particular property. The result of these reports can vary somewhat from one appraiser to another but they tend to be fairly standard and arrive to the same general conclusion.
As a final note you can request your own private appraising done to give you a better understanding of the property market value and condition. In unusual property purchases this may be a good way to proceed before purchasing the property.
