Explanation of Home Appraisal and Home Inspection

Evangeline Scott of Big Valley Mortgage talks about the differences between a home appraisal and home inspection in this video.

Home Inspections are highly advised.


Home Appraisals are required by the lender.


You as the home buyer hires the home inspector. I have a list of home inspectors that I can recommend to you.

The appraiser is hired by the lender. You as the buyer are not able to select an appraiser.

There is a lot of detail involved when purchasing a home that is why it is important to have a real estate agent and loan officer on your team that you can trust. I have a list of trusted home loan officers that I can refer you to. If you have any questions, I am here to help. Give me a call 916-865-8759.

I am looking forward to getting you in your new home!
