Exterior Appraisals Los Angeles

The defining characteristic of a drive-by appraisal is that the appraiser doesn’t go inside the

house. The appraiser merely goes out to look at the property — “drives by it,” in other words —

to take pictures and verify that the subject property physically exists. The overall condition of

the subject is usually assumed average and was influenced by quality of the exterior and

information provided by owner. Assumptions are made based on this information and are taken

into consideration in determining overall condition and value. The rest of the appraiser’s work is

done with real estate records — analyzing assessments on the home and neighboring properties

and looking at recent sales of comparable homes to arrive at an estimate of value for the subject

property.
