They are real people, just like us.  I'm just friendly to them.  Guess what?  they are just as friendly back.

Many times on listings i represent, the apprasier comes after we are past the inspection period.  I will remove the key safe.  That way, they have no way in other than thru me.  They call, we chat, make an appointment, and give them a breif run down of comps, etc.   I dont tell them what to do, but politely share knowledge.  I have found apprasiers come with a varing degree of knowledge, some more than others.  I have yet to have a listing I represent, not appraise :)

I usually stay out of their way after the pleasantries.  I am in fear of some perceived impropriety, so I keep my distance.  Personally, other than letting them in the door, I see no reason to talk with them.  I do understand REALTOR® wanting to get the MOST for their homeowners, but I am not willing to put my license on the line to do so.

I always had all of the information in hand in a package with three comps to give to the appraiser....I made their jobs easier than most agents in my area....they would always call me for info on other homes, and that ALWAYS gave me an edge!!! never lost a deal because of an appraiser....

Absolutely! Isn't that part of my job as the seller's agent? I am friendly and I offer comps that justify that sale price

If I'm a listing agent, I always make my best to be there armed with comps and a big smile. I actually bring the whole file with me, just in case if there are any questions.

It depends on the type of listing it is.  If it is an investor who has revamped a home I leave copies of the repair and purchase bills so they will accurately appraise the property.  The appraisers have always taken the information left.

I like to make sure they see the "highlights" of the property.  I do keep a low key conversation, so I get an idea of their experience and if they have appraised local homes.  I ask them if they need comps and sometimes will drop the address of a local home that provides a good comp.

I just provide comps I used to determine list price, and whatever information i have on the house, upgrades, etc. Then the rest is up to them.
