Appraisals

What factors have a negative impact on appraisals?  I would like to refinance and will need a new appraisal; however, we are in the process of remodeling a room of the house.  Should this be completed before having the appraisal?

For a conventional loan it must be completed prior to application. Now if it's a conforming loan even your mortgage broker can't pick the appraiser. Don't spend any money beforehand on that. .... Best wishes, Rudi
