All appraisal companies focus on service as their differentiator. However, they all make the same claims: fast turn times, weekend staffing and rush order services. At Incenter Appraisal Management these are important, but they’re table stakes. Moreover, a fast appraisal can still be missing information or worse, just plain wrong. Regardless of whether it’s too high, or too low, the result can be a derailed loan, unhappy seller and buyer, and some very trying moments for the real estate agents involved.
That’s why Incenter Appraisal Management (IAM) acknowledges what others don’t: the quality of our work, no matter how fast it’s produced, is only as good as the professional integrity and experience of our appraisers. We don’t treat our appraisers like a commodity. Instead we respect the difficulty of their job and pay them fairly. Appraisals are assigned according to local knowledge and expertise; not simply by availability or who will do it for the cheapest price.
Putting our appraiser network at the center of our service delivery has allowed us to attract and build relationships with the best-of-the-best across our national footprint. In fact, many of our appraisers will only work with IAM (and we’re happy to reciprocate by giving them enough business to earn a good living.) But the real beneficiaries are our clients who know they can trust our appraisals to be thorough, USPAP compliant and right on the money.
