Low Appraisals

The real estate crisis in America has caused Financial Institutions to become very conservative with regard to approving mortgages for prospective homeowners. Bankers have put pressure on the appraisers they use to be very conservative in the valuation of homes. Restrictive loan underwriting requirements are causing many homes to be valued at 15 to 20% less than the actual market value. This has resulted in prospective home purchasers backing out of real estate deals due to a lower than anticipated appraisals.

Real Estate Appraisal Problems

During the days of the real estate boom, financial institutions accepted appraisers’ inflated home values so the prospective purchasers could obtain larger mortgages. Since the time the real estate bubble burst, new home purchasers have found that the appraisers working for financial institutions are now under valuing homes. In April of 2011, the medium national home price in the United States was $163,700. This was a 5% reduction from the median value of a single family home since April, 2010.
