Furthermore, do refinance appraisals come in low? Home appraisals are often required for refinance loans. A “low appraisal” happens a lot more on refinance transactions than on purchase ones. The homeowner often has a figure in mind, but it's not always based on actual sales in the area, or truly comparable sales.
Beside this, how does the appraisal affect a refinance?
Refinance rates are dependent on the value of your home, so if an appraisal shows that your home has increased in worth, you may be eligible for a lower refi rate than you anticipated. If the loan-to-value ratio is too high, the lender may charge the borrower a higher mortgage rate to reflect greater risk.
What happens when your appraisal comes back high?
Your lender orders an appraisal of the property after you sign the purchase contract. If it's lower, you may have to renegotiate the purchase agreement because your loan amount can't exceed the home's actual value. If the appraisal is higher than expected, you can move forward with the loan.
