The appraisal report will include the address of your property; a description of the neighborhood, including market factors like property value trends; and a description of the lot. It will also include a listing of the features and characteristics of the house, such as a description of the exterior and the foundation; the number of rooms; the materials in each room, such as floor covering and trim; utility systems like heat and electricity; equipment in the kitchen and a description of the attic and garage, if applicable.
