Various Thoughts About Meeting Appraisers in Sacramento

Most of the time when I get a call from an appraiser to view my listing, that call is coming from an appraiser I know from previous transactions. It seems most of the appraisers are in certain pools and they tend to get picked. For example, I never see or hear from an appraiser who tends to blog a lot about appraising, which makes me wonder if that guy ever does any business or much of it. But I do have a regular group of appraisers who call. Just not that one. Maybe it's because a former client threatened to sue him for publishing personal information about her property to which he was not a party, not to mention the information was private not public? Dunno.

In this group, all of the appraisers are experienced and competent. For me to ask to meet them at the property to hand them comps, which they can readily find on their own, is a bit insulting. However, when it's a new appraiser who calls, that might be the ticket. You can read more from my partner today at this link: Is Meeting the Real Estate Appraiser at the Property Important? She has her own ideas about it.
