sorry about your cancer drug; I've not reached that stage yet. Just drugs to reduce the size of a certain organ only guys have.....If you get a mortgage or refinance your current mortgage, you'll need a signature from someone like me.
So, yes, have bought 3 homes. Refi'd one; HELOC on that same one; sold 3 homes. Very very very aware of the require appraisals. The items I listed actually DISPLAY on the final appraisal report. Well, not the employment rate, not the minimum wage. And that was my point minimum wage page in that state has no bearing on home prices. and, even I granted it was, it would be so far down the list to have no effect.
A house across the street that is 'run down' will have an effect. The wage tacobell pays brand new employees, doesn't.
And, just to say, appraisal reports cost way too much since a computer does 99% of the work. Just saying.
