Sometimes there is some confusion over the difference between an appraisal and a market evaluation. An appraisal is an unbiased valuation of real estate done by an appraisal professional and completed for property owners, lawyers, government bodies, lending institutions, or mortgage brokers. There are several reasons to request an appraisal but the most common is for mortgage lending purposes. A market evaluation, on the other hand, is usually conducted by a Realtor for the purpose of determining the market value of a home that a client would like to sell.
Westview Zaikow Agencies completes appraisal reports for most major Canadian lending institutions. Our service area includes Powell River, Texada Island, Savary Island, and Lund to Saltery Bay, and as always our fees are fair, and below the national average. We strive to have the fastest turnaround time in the Powell River area.
