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.

We chose Jill Wente as our buyer's agent and she provided knowledgeable, top-notch service. We decided to go with a new build, which we had never done before, and Jill guided us expertly through the process.

She even took the time to go to the Design Center with us. Jill's knowledge, service-focused attitude and credentials add up to excellence at work for you. read less
