Appraisal ScaleOver the years, I've had friends, family & colleagues coming to me asking about appraisals.  Usually, it's to say that they just got one and the appraiser "clearly must have been smoking something"...  A lot of folks are looking to take advantage of the low interest rates that are teasing them.  If you haven't refinanced your house in the last year (or even last 6 months), it might be time to check your current interest rate against market interest rates because they've dropped substantially over the last year.  I personally have refinanced my home twice this year.
