what happens if the appraisal is higher than my offer?I put in an offer on a home and it was accepted.Since its a short-sale the bank would like to do another appraisal. I am afraid that this time around it will get appraised at a higher end and I will not be able to afford it. It was orininally listed at $185k, appraised at $215k and my offer was $220k. From what I understand this is the 3rd time it gets appraised and the other two times they left it at $215kDecember 20 2010 - Staten Island00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
