These are just a few reasons why you might need a certified appraisal.  

 Don’t confuse an appraisal with a market analysis. A market analysis can be completed by a Realtor, lender, or other individual that has knowledge of the market. This is a value that doesn’t meet the requirements of an appraisal. Appraisals are completed by a person that is licensed and certified with the State of Iowa and is governed by their rules and regulations. Appraisers are required by law to meet these requirements.
