Real Estate Renovations

Ring My Bell!

Steadily we are moving along without too many hiccups or hold ups. It’s still murder on my nerves. Yesterday was our appraisal. The timing was awful as I had a meeting on the coast and had an hour and a half drive in order to get there.  Of course the only time the appraiser had to come by was an hour and a half before my meeting.  SO I bit the bullet, let my client know that I might be a wee be late and prayed to the traffic gods that my route would be clear.

I waited for the appraiser to come and time was a ticking… I see nothing just as I am calling the hubs to see if maybe I had missed a reschedule I look out of the window and lo and behold there is the appraiser walking around taking notes.  I run out and introduce myself and she says, “I knocked you didn’t answer so you’re about to get a phone call from my office.”  And sure enough all the phones start ringing.  Her office calls my husband, my husband is calling me and the appraiser is belting out questions. ( Calgon, take me away…)

Next the appraiser asks for the drawings.

Sidebar:  When scheduling the appointment I specifically asked if they had copies of the drawings or if they needed them, they indicated that already had them.  Cool.

I explain that i was told she already had them, she didn’t.  I REALLY didn’t want to hand over the only copy I currently had in my possession so here we go again. My husband said her office told him they put a copy of the drawings in her packet, she says she doesn’t have them, her office calls her and reiterates all of this…..etc. etc. etc… Until finally I said I really don’t care who says they gave you what… What do you need and may I call the architect and have him email you a copy right now?  Please provide the email address you would like them to go to and I will get them to you immediately.

She agrees but only after making sure I knew that it wasn’t her fault and that she didn’t drop the ball. (Is your head hurting yet?  Mine was…)

I guess the remainder of the appraisal went well enough, I am just so upset that it was so chaotic and I really hope that it doesn’t impact the number we get back.

Que sera sera right?
