What to do if appraiser makes a misktake on appraisal data that results in not getting a loan?We recently decided to refinance. Our bank hired an appraiser and provided us copy of appraisal. We were shocked to learn a most recent comp was not used in favor of older (some 9-10 months old) lower priced comps. Since it was only 5 doors down and of simlar size, sold only 5 months earlier, we assumed it would be used. Including this comp would have tipped the scales in our favor of receiving the loan. She listed the reason for not using it in her comments as "property was 1,000 sq. ft. larger". Since we live in a neighborhood of only 5 or 6 similar sized models and are familiar with all, we know this not to be true. I verified this through the tax assessors office and sent this information to the bank. They forwarded that information to the appraisal company who sent back a comment, "appraiser says her research in sq. footage is 1,000 sq. feet bigger". Of course she would defend her position or look incompetent! No one verified the data though! My bank is requesting another appeal but I am not hopeful they will recognize this mistake. Is there anything I can do at this point?February 12 2012 - Atlanta00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
