What is a Relocation Appraisal?  According to the Appraisal Institute:

The value of your home never remains the same.  Its value today is probably not the same as when you bought it, and it probably won’t be the same a year from now. As a result, your employer or a relocation company may obtain one or more appraisals to assess the anticipated sales price of your home in connection with your move. Sometimes an average of two or more appraised values is utilized (depending on the company’s policy) and an additional appraisal might be undertaken if there is any significant discrepancy. A relocation appraisal is an estimate of the anticipated sales price at which your home will sell in the current market within a reasonable length of time, based on what appraisers call the sales comparison analysis. The appraiser inspects your home, analyzes the factors that influence the market, and reaches a value conclusion.

Marketing time depends on the conditions in your community, but the definition of anticipated sales price indicates “a reasonable marketing period, not to exceed 120 days and commencing on the date of appraisal (inspection), is allowed for exposure on the open market.”

Appraisals for relocation and refinancing are each completed for a different intended use. Each appraisal is based on a different definition of value, with its own specific guidelines that affect the development of the valuation.

The relocation appraisal is based on an anticipated sale of the property during a defined, reasonable marketing period and the analysis considers what market trends and conditions may impact the property while it is exposed for sale. The mortgage appraisal is based only on a retrospective analysis of past sales transactions and reflects normal market conditions.

Relocation appraisals are different than traditional appraisal.  Here is a link provided by the Worldwide ERC which notes some of the differences:
