What if I don't let the appraiser inspect my home?

By denying an inspection the appraiser will be forced to make an arbitrary appraisal of the property which could be in error due to incomplete or improper information associated with the field record, possibly resulting in a higher valuation or wrong property classification. Appraisers want to view as many properties as possible in order to have the best possible information on all property, since the quality of the assessment is a measure of the quality of their work. 

Not allowing an interior inspection will result in the loss of the right to appeal your market value at the Board of Review (Minnesota Statute 273.20 and 274.01. sub. 1).
