Home Sale Prices Vs. Appraised Value: Why That Matters to You

So the home sales prices in #realestate  for #GrandRapidsMI  are going up. Obviously. But what about appraised property values? Are they going up, too? Perhaps, but they certainly won't be catching up with the skyrocketing prices, and that's a major turn-off for home flippers.

GR has been seeing multiple offers on listings these days — major competition for the everyday home flipper when you think about it. After all, if the sales price ends up being way more than the actual appraised value, there's not much chance of that home flipper increasing the value that much more to sell for a profitable price, minus the time and investment.

So here's some advice — don't flip houses in GR. This is one real estate economy going to the home buyers and sellers of a community. No home FLIPPERS here.
