Appraisal Addendum: I am suggesting the possibility of including a separate “Appraisal Addendum” for all conventional contracts. The Addendum should provide if the property does not appraise for the purchase price, that the Purchaser and Seller need to negotiate a new price based on the appraisal. There should be a time limit on the negotiation period, and any new negotiated price cannot be less than the appraisal. If the parties cannot agree on a new price, then either Purchaser or Seller reserves the right to terminate the contract. Please contact me at if you have any questions.
