I have had two cases where the appraiser was WAY off with the appraisal and the whole appraisal had to be appealed. It does happen. Especially, if the appraisers are not familiar with the city or with the area of the city where they are sent to appraise. In one case, it was my understanding that the appraiser was from Bucks County trying to appraise a listing in Fishtown. I won't go into the details but the appraisal price the person came up with was ludicrous. I think if the appraiser works mostly in the city and knows the neighborhoods well then it should be fine.
And as always if you have a good realtor that you listen to, they should be able to tell you if a home is priced correctly. I hope that helps.
