We take your Request for Reconsideration Seriously! 

Ascend Appraisal Solutions Group welcomes your inquiries regarding any and all real estate transactions.  So that we may address your questions with the appraisal report, we encourage you to follow the Request for Reconsideration process.

 

The following information are the most common Request for Reconsideration issues that arise: 

  • Providing property sales comps currently already used by the appraiser in the report.

  • Providing active or pending listings.

  • Providing property sales comps that are typically 20% larger or smaller than subject property size.

  • Providing property sales comps outside a reasonable geographic radius than those already used.

  • Providing property sales comps that clearly have improved/newer amenities, condition, and quality.

  • Providing property sales comps based on the price per square foot. Though this is a consideration the actual process an appraiser must adhere to requires many more factors than the basic pricing method.

Please be sure to review and include the following conditions prior to submitting:

  • You may supply up to (3) four alternate property sales comps.

  • Property sales comps cannot be used if sold after the effective date of the appraisal.

  • Please do not provide active property listings, or pending sales as they are typically discredited by the appraiser.

  • Property sales provided must show to be similar to, or better, then those used by the appraiser in accordance to the Fannie Mae standards.

  • You must fill out provided form. We cannot adequately process or track the request otherwise.

  • You may add comments in the section at the bottom.

  • You may not question adjustment amounts.

  • You may not question how the value was reconciled. Any unacceptable comments will be removed before sending to the appraiser.
