How Can We Help
We recognize that in both the private sector as well as the public sector more responsibility is now placed on credible appraisals. Inaccurate appraisals can lead to unwise investments. If you are a lender, you need to have confidence that your collateral is sufficient to support the loan. If you’re a public agency, you need to know that the property owner is being compensated at market value and be assured that public funds are not being wasted. Our experience attests – without a doubt – to our ability to work effectively in this high-pressure environment.Learn More
What is an Appraisal?
A real estate acquisition is generally the largest single investment most people will ever make and the real estate component is often the largest asset in many balance sheets. Whether it’s a purchase of a primary residence or a large scale commercial property; the acquisition of real estate is a complex financial transaction that requires skilled professionals. In the case of conventional mortgage lending, the lending institution, realtors and title companies all have tasks to do in order to consummate the transaction. The appraiser is the check and balance of that transaction who values the property to insure the lender has adequate collateral for their loan and that the purchaser is made aware of any difference between their sale price and market value.Learn More
What is an Appraisal Review?
Appraisal reviews are prepared in order to determine whether the appraisal document is appropriate for the specific scope of work and risk of the transaction. The appraisal review is prepared by knowledgeable & objective appraisal professionals who confirm whether the process by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence, quality and accuracy.Learn More
