Short answer? You do. An appraisal management company is a third party that steps in to provide expertise in appraising a property or location specifically for financing. So when it comes to applying for a home or property loan, ask who’s doing the appraising. Is it the lending company itself? Or is it an appraisal management company that has trained individuals prepared for any type of home or property and know exactly what the market can bear? An agency like RDS Real Estate has such professionals on hand to appraise office space and industrial properties and are accustomed to keeping the best interests of both the renter and the owner in mind. So why not contact us and ask us more about appraisal management and how the appraisal process can help you with your next rental experience.
