Why would a lender order an appraisal prior to giving a loan?
to determine the term of the loan
to ensure that the property’s value is at least equal to the sales price, and not ever make the loan if it is below the sales price
to assess the property’s value relative to its sales price, and use this to determine the risk of making the loan
to make sure that the home is worth way more than the sales price
