Broker Price Opinion

An estimation of the value of a property by a real estate broker. A broker price opinion may take into account the quality of the property, values of surrounding properties and market conditions in the area. However, the estimation is not as detailed or as definitive as a full appraisal. A BPO may be done at the request of a bank when the owner of the property is attempting to refinance a loan or when it is attempting to find an alternative to foreclosure. It also may be done to help a seller determine the best asking price for his/her property.
