Appraisals and Inspections – What is the Difference?

As your trusted title company at the Lake of the Ozarks since 1984, we are asked this question a lot by our clients during the process of closing on a house at the Lake of the Ozarks . While appraisals and inspections both involve taking a close look at the home you are buying, they each serve different purposes.  The reason for an appraisal is to determine the value of your home at the Lake of the Ozarks .
