Each month, I like to highlight someone I work with while helping my clients buy and sell homes. This month, I wanted to highlight an appraiser that has helped many of my clients – Gant Frink at GPF Real Estate Appraisals.
Appraisals and Square Footage
Did you know that the square footages represented by sellers are sometimes inaccurate? It’s true! However, most sellers aren’t trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Instead, one of these things is happening:
- The seller remembers the numbers incorrectly
- The property records are not accurate
- Builders/ developers have included unfinished spaces that should not be part of the numbers
If one of these things happens, then you could easily be spending money on square footage that doesn’t exist!
In my time as a real estate agent, I have found errors that have literally saved my clients hundreds of thousands of dollars. When the property was measured accurately and found to be smaller, the price of the home was reduced.
Why Gant Frink?
Why do I recommend Gant as an appraiser? He has the ability to get the job done and make it easy for my clients. First, you can order your appraisal using his online system. Then, you can find out the status of your report as well as have your appraisal delivered electronically. This keeps anyone from having to play phone tag. Even with all this technology, his prices are super competitive.
Finally, I like using Gant because his numbers are incredibly accurate. His appraisals always help my clients make informed real estate decisions, and if past mistakes are found, he can save them a considerable amount of money.
If you have questions about home appraisals, feel free to contact me or Gant. I’d love to offer any insights that I have.
