The home I just sold appraised for exactly what we sold it for. The house I bought appraised for exactly what we bought it for. It’s all a complete waste of time isn’t it? Just one more guy to pay. Realtor wants their money, lender wants their money, and the appraiser just looks at the sale price and goes “Yep! Looks good to me.!”
Seems like a con job type a deal to me.
