Does anyone know how appraisals work?
Is the appraisal usually higher than the price you are buying it for?

The appraisal is the amount the house is worth to the bank. In a buyers market you might be buying it for less, sellers market there can be budding wars and drive the price way up above market value.

It might help to look at comps in the neighborhood. That will give you an idea of what houses in the area have sold for recently.

Means nothing to you unless you are negotiating a. Sellers concession off of it.

I just bought a house so I know a bit about this. An appraisal that’s higher than what you are paying is a good thing
