Appraisal: What an appraiser says a home is worth. This value is based on how much comparable homes recently sold for in the neighborhood.
Appraisal contingency: Very important protection for the buyer! This is how you make sure that the property is actually valued at the price that was agreed-upon per the contract. If the property ends up appraising for less than the agreed-upon amount, the contract can be terminated.
Appraisal gap coverage: The difference between the contract price which covers an agreed-upon difference between the purchase price and appraised value. This is often used to accommodate appraised values that aren’t able to keep up with fair market value.
