“Seems to” is sensual (touch/think). Example: “The plate seems to be warm” (touch) or “The monsters seem to be nearing the house.” (instinctive)
Q: What is the difference between it appears and there appears ?
A: They mean the same thing, but changes the sentence structure depending on how you say it. :)
For example:
"It appears that we have a change of plans."
"There appears to be a change of plans."

"There appears to be rain."
"It appears that it's raining."

"Seem" can be used in all of the same ways as "appears" in this context, and they follow the same rules. :)
Q: What is the difference between appear to be and seem to be ?
A: The meaning for both phrases is the same. It depends on which phrase is more suitable in a given context. A subtle difference, if any at all, is that the use of "appears to be" seems to point more towards the exterior or look of something. For example,
"The suspect appears to be clad in a black leather jacket."

Meanwhile, "seems to be"
is more frequently referred to intangible observations. For example,
"He seems to be going to the gym more often."

Bottom line is that both phrases are almost identical and even in the examples given above, both phrases are interchangeable.
