Why are you taking exterior photos of other houses in my neighborhood?

Why are you taking exterior photos of other houses in my neighborhood?

One part of the appraisal process is to identify comparable homes in your neighborhood that have recently sold. To verify that the photo in the MLS accurately portrays the home identified as a comparable property, the appraiser takes a photograph of the exterior. While there are no laws that prohibit taking photos of the exterior of homes, Stafford Appraisals respects and understands the need for privacy and takes great care not to include individuals in comparable photos. If children are playing in the front yard or workers are present, Stafford Appraisals will either obscure them in the final photo or return at a later date to take an exterior photo of the comparable property.
