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.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
