to learn more about the types of properties we work with
real estate appraisals for one to four family homes. Included in each report are at least three comparable sales that support
the market value conclusion. We have combined the strength of seasoned professionals with the newest technology to develop
quality residential appraisal reports for one to four family homes.
FHA and Reverse Mortgage appraisals
Many of our appraisers are approved by the Government to perform appraisals for the Federal Housing Administration for new
loans and Reverse Mortgages.
Partial Interest Properties
Ownership of less than 100% of real
estate can result in management, sale and refinancing difficulties. We use market-based sales which reflect the discounts
appropriate for those difficult situations.
Establishing values with
an appraisal enables owners to plan for the appropriate distribution of ownership. Our extensive library of sale information
covering the last twenty years enables us to develop retrospective values. The combination of retrospective and current values
is part of the flexibility we bring to the planning process.
The assessment of
real estate has changed in the last fifteen years. Towns and cities are statistically analyzing properties to estimate tax
value. This is a change from the manual computations and we find the computerized estimates of value have failed to fully
address the actual market. Our process reviews and recalculates the assessor's valuation based on the changing real estate
market.Insurance Coverage or Claim
Insurance valuations address the need for adequate coverage
of the investment. An appraised value prior to a loss reflects the quality and quantity of home improvements. Estimating the
value contribution of each component after a loss is part of the appraisal process.
