How to find an Appraiser...
when you don't know a soul in the area you are buying?
We are moving to Florida from NY and don't know anyone to ask. We found a house and our offer was accepted. We are paying cash and due to the market in Florida, would like to have the house appraised.
Realtor keeps saying she has a great appraiser and home inspector but all the advice I read here says to 'not' use someone from the Realtor.
I tried calling my bank, Chase, and they were no help at all. Said they farm it out to whoever the computer picks. Ridiculous!
Other than the Yellow Pages, any suggestions?
