Can the value of real estate be reduced based on a submitted appraisal? Does this take the place of an actual inspection?

The value of real estate may be reduced based on a submitted appraisal but it does not take the place of a physical inspection. In addition, appraisals should be reviewed by an expert in the matter who should ensure that the appraisal is credible, as of the date of the last revaluation, and for the intended tax appeal purpose.
