do you check the validity of an appraisal before you establish a price?our home is at 180 vine st. 95688. we just had it appraised to refinance. in april, the square footage was 2912 square feet, we are on 2.89 acres. in september, the apparaiser indicated the square footage was 2052 square feet. Both indicated the property was worth $250,000. the appraiser in april used $145/sq ft. the appraiser in september did no calculation. i guess she pulled the number off the top of her head. that would mean our house is now <$100/square foot at 2052, what'd we do? Chop 1000 square feet off of our house. We also have a 1000 square foot granny house.October 11 2010 - Vacaville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
