Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time

This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for.

Hi Caroline, I can't speak for Wells Fargo, but I've never had a client denied based on an appraisal that came in at or above the purchase price on the contract. The rules on appraisal values for purchases are straightforward: the property must appraise at or above the purchase price (including the sellers concession, if any) in order for the lender to have sufficient collateral for the proposed mortgage.
In fact, the appraisal is not "short" or "low" unless it comes in below the contract price.. And then I normally say " congratulations" to my client because most contracts allows the buyer to go back to the seller and ask them to reduce the purchase price to reflect the actual appraised value. Of course, the seller can say " no." in which case the buyer can opt to make up the difference or walk away from the deal and get their deposit refunded.
You are entitled to receive a copy of your appraisal irrespective of the value along with a Declination Letter stating the exact reason for your denial. Where's your banker and attorney in all this? Are they MIA. There should be no reason for you to seek answers from the Trulia community on this issue when those two professionals are supposed to guide you through the mortgage process from preapproval to closing. Hold them accountable!
Should you require a second opinion on your purchase, please feel free to contact me directly at 917.699.0183 or via email at email@example.com.

Hello, by law the bank must select their own appraiser and use that particular report. You are free to do what you like but it will not be used. The reason for this is to make sure the appraiser is working in the best interest of the bank to make sure the price you are paying for the property is valid before they lend you the money and no one is influencing the appraiser.... more
It will match only sometimes. Most time it is higher are lower.
During the economic downturn it was not uncommon for an appraisal to be less that what the buyer and seller agreed to. If this was the case the buyer would have to make up the difference, walk away or re-negotiate with the seller.,... more

If you have a decent credit score (because you pay your bills on time, and don't owe the maximum on your revolving credit accounts, and keep your credit use conservative) then you need to stop worrying so much about inquiries! Most of the credit update junk being offered to consumers is just that : JUNK! It's the credit bureaus trying to make money from innocent consumers by frightening the heck out of us. Don't give in to the madness and the hype.
Here's some TRUTH about credit inquiries: If you are shopping for an Auto Loan, Student Loan or Mortgage Loan, multiple inquiries on your credit report in a 30 day period will have NO EFFECT on your credit score!
Not only have I read this at the FICO (Fair Isaac Company) website, but I have seen this with my own eyes on consumer credit reports. FICO Education page: http://www.myfico.com/CreditEducation/CreditInquiries.aspx
I recently had a client whose report showed six inquiries in one day at a car dealership. She was shopping for financing programs and they had run her report six times in a single day. Her score had not changed since I last ran it.
When a mortgage professional tells you "don't let anyone else run your credit," what he's really saying is, "Don't compare my services and terms to anyone else." In other words, he's lying to you to keep you as a client. Me, I prefer the truth and transparency. I also prefer to educate my clients on the finer points of financing so they can make the best decision possible.
