using home as asset for I-864

Recommended Posts

The instructions say that to use a home it needs to be accompanied with a recent appraisal by a licensed appraisers. Does anyone have experience with this? Would the appraisal by the city for tax purposes suffice?

From what I have read on here, the tax appraisal is not sufficient as it is not always accurate to what a home can actually be sold for. In our case, they accepted our sales papers (we only bought the house 2 months before the interview).

Tax valuation is not acceptable. Need a current market valuation by a license appraiser.
