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.
