TALBOT APPRAISAL SERVICES
We are Appraisal Institute of Canada designated residential appraisers!
COVID-19 Update: March 24, 2020:
In order to protect our appraisers and as per the AIC, we will be adopting the following procedures:
1. Full Appraisals are being accepted at this time. NO INTERIOR INSPECTIONS unless the home is vacant (as in for sale owners have moved out, or new construction not yet occupied). IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES ONLY: Owners / Purchasers will be interviewed by phone for building characteristics and be asked to provide photos taken on the day of the interview. Lender approval is required for non-interior inspections.
2. If the subject property is vacant, our appraisers will still only enter building(s) with gloves & masks for their protection.
DESK TOP and DRIVE BY Appraisals: Are still being accepted!
We encourage lenders and brokers to check with the Lender requirements and choose DESK TOP or DRIVE BY appraisals in the interim.
Talbot Appraisal Services appreciates your understanding as we modify our services for everyone's protection.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Talbot Appraisals for the past several years. The staff are friendly & professional. TAS plays a crucial role in our business as they are local and well informed of the values in today's market. They deliver prompt, professional reports and our lenders appreciate this. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Talbot Appraisals."
"I would like to say that Talbot Appraisals is one of the best appraisal service in the London area. They are fair and accurate. They have an excellent turn-around time and when a report is needed in a rush, they have gone out of their way to accommodate and meet the needs of the situation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to fellow mortgage agents and home owners."
" TAS helped push a rush appraisal through for me on a quick close. I was anxious and nervous about the time constraints but they were amazing. They have a great understanding of the industry and they are knowledgeable and professional. The admin staff is excellent at staying in touch during the process and they put me at ease. I will use them again and would definitely recommend."
One of the key methods in valuing a residential property involves comparing properties that have recently
sold within the neighbouring area and that offer similar characteristics to the property being valued.
Comparing recently sold properties to the property being valued – since the objective of the appraisal is to estimate the price that the subject property would most likely sell for if exposed to the marketplace, recent sales of similar properties are used for comparison and as benchmarks. Comparable sales represent what other informed buyers in the marketplace are willing to pay for similar features, location and amenities.
Adjusting the sale price based on key differences in the property – since no two properties are exactly alike, the appraiser gathers information on the comparable sales and applies adjustments to the actual sale price of these sales to reflect their differences (location, characteristics and amenities) vis-à-vis the subject property.
