In the real estate industry, there are instances you’ll require a full appraisal while at other times real estate consulting may be more suitable. This blog post is written to help you determine which service would be most beneficial to yourself. South Florida Valuation, based in Tampa, Florida, is here to shed some light on these distinctions and help you make informed decisions for your needs.


Appraisal vs. Real Estate Consulting

Appraisal services involve determining the fair market value of a property, primarily for transactions, financing, or legal matters. It’s a data-driven and detailed process performed by certified appraisers like ours. An appraisal service will provide you with a detailed report giving you an abundance of information and data to support the assessed property value.


On the other hand, real estate consulting services offer expert advice and strategic insights into various aspects of real estate, beyond just valuations. They provide strategic planning, market analysis, and expert advice on various real estate aspects. A consultation will help you navigate risks, optimize your portfolio, and make informed decisions, ensuring your real estate endeavors align with your long-term goals and financial stability.


When You Might Need an Appraisal

Financing a Purchase: Lenders require appraisals to determine the property’s value and secure loans. An appraisal also serves to protect both the buyer and seller from an under or over-valued deal.

Refinancing Your Home: If you’re considering refinancing your home, your lender will require a current appraisal to determine the property’s value and your current LTV ratio (loan-to-value).

Legal Matters: Appraisals can be used in divorce proceedings, estate planning, or tax assessments.
