Has this situation ever happened to you? After hearing a knock on your front door, you get up to see who it is. But instead of finding a girl scout selling cookies on your front porch, you find an appraiser from the Harris County Appraisal District.
After showing you his identification badge and introducing himself, the appraiser bombards you with questions about your Spring Texas house.
You feel like you have just been put on trial and you are wondering what your rights are.
Do you have to answer the appraiser’s questions?
No. You do not have to answer the appraiser’s questions. You do not have to allow the appraiser to access your home nor your backyard.
The purpose for the appraiser’s questions is so the Harris County Appraisal District can calculate the appraised value of your home. Now, whether you help the appraiser calculate the appraised value of your home … that is up to you.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
