Call Astute Appraisals, Inc. to order appraisals regarding Howard foreclosures

Foreclosure and REO Appraisals in Howard County

There are specific appraisal problems when it comes to a home in foreclosure or one that has returned to the lender's control.

For a house in foreclosure, you need to understand the difference between fair market worth and "quick disposition" price to know your likely charge-off liability. We can provide both snapshots of fair market value for our mortgage servicing clients, in addition to "quick sale" forecasts that respect your time constraints.

You need a company who has the training to work with the unique dynamics of a foreclosure appraisal. For a company you can trust, contact Astute Appraisals, Inc..

Owners of properties in foreclosure, of course, can present particular challenges. They may be unwilling to allow an inspection of the property. If they deserted the property already, they might have neglected care of the house for a long time - or even worse, ransacked the house.

If your home has already changed to REO, you will interested in a speedy disposition. However, you may want to understand and examine three values: as-is, as repaired, and "quick sale." These represent the worth of the property without any repairs performed, with the repairs necessary to make the property marketable at full market value corresponding with the other properties in the neighborhood, and, somewhere in the middle, with minor investment in repairs - selling the property quickly, probably as a "fixer-upper". Again, we understand your timeline and the special circumstances of an REO property, as well as the unique information you will need -- competing listings, market trends, and so forth. You can count on Astute Appraisals, Inc. to handle the appraisal of your bank owned property with expertise and professionalism. Contact us today.
