Homes in foreclosure and homes that have reverted to your institution's ownership may present certain problems for you. At Hughes Appraisal Service, we are ready and able to help.
Owners of property in foreclosure may be unwilling to allow an inspection of the property. Or they may have abandoned the property already; they may have neglected care of the home for some time -- or worse, caused some damage. We have the experience and training to deal with the dynamics of a foreclosure appraisal, and you should not hesitate to rely on us.
For a property that has already reverted to Real Estate Owned, you likewise will be interested in a quick disposition. But you may want to know and compare three values: As-is, as repaired, and "quick sale." These represent the value of the property without any work done to it, with the work required to make the property marketable to full market value commensurate with competing properties in the area, and, somewhere in-between, with minimal investment in repairs -- selling the property quickly, probably as a "fixer-upper." Again, we understand your timeline and the unique circumstances of an REO property, as well as the special information you'll need -- competing listings, market trends, and the like.
