WHAT WE DO

Tax Assessment Appeals

It’s quite possible you’re paying too much in property taxes if you reside in an area where property values have depreciated. Ad Valorem taxes are based upon a previous assessment of your house, so if values are less than what they used to be in your neighborhood, you can challenge your assessment and save money. When building your case, an appraisal is your best evidence. We’re capable of assisting you in appealing your tax assessment.

Refinancing or Home Equity Loans

You may have a project you would like to complete on your home, you may want to take the trip your family has always dreamed of, you may want to help your children through college, or you may have plans to consolidate your bills. Interest rates tend to fluctuate, and in order to take advantage of the best rate possible, your home will more than likely have to be reappraised.

Divorce Settlement

Lets face it. A divorce can be extremely difficult for both parties and is often further complicated by the decision of “Who gets the house?”. In most divorce cases, the Court won’t usually force the parties involved to “buyout” the other party’s interest but it may however order the sale of the home so each party gets an equal share of the equity. Regardless of the situation, it’s a good idea to order an appraisal so both parties are fully aware of what the true market value is.

Estate Liquidation

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time in life and settling an estate often requires an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for the residential property involved. Most Americans do not have estate planners or executors to handle real property issues. In most cases, the first step in fairly disposing of an estate is to understand its true value. Where property is involved, the appraiser can help determine the true value. At this point, equitable arrangements can more easily be arrived at among disputing parties. Everyone walks away knowing they’ve received a fair deal.

Substantial Home Improvements

Before you decide to sell your home, there are several decisions to be made. First and foremost: “How much should it sell for?” Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal effect. While spending thousands of dollars to finish your basement or add a deck may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expense.

Real Estate Owned and Foreclosed Properties

Real estate in foreclosure and Real Estate Owned (REO) properties bring forth various appraisal difficulties.
Owners of homes in foreclosure might be opposed to allowing an inspection of the home, thus presenting special challenges. Sometimes the houses have been intentionally damaged by the residents. Other times, there are circumstances where the families have moved out of the home neglected for extended periods of time.

You should understand the meanings of “market value” and a “quick disposition” value to analyze your possible charge-off liability when dealing with a home in foreclosure. We have years of experience in both providing snapshots of market value for our mortgage originating clients, in addition to “quick sale” forecasts that consider your timeline.

OUR WORK

Reasons For Ordering A Real Estate Appraisal

To a lot of people, an appraisal is simply one more thing in the long list of items for a home sale or refinance. Most lenders still call in a local expert because the stakes are very high. Even though there are a budding number of automated home valuation processes that might appear to be cheaper than an appraisal. Is obtaining a mortgage the only basis for getting an appraisal? Are there also cases when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional might be beneficial? Of course there are.
