How Do Pre-Foreclosure & Short Sale Appraisals Work?

Pre-Foreclosure and Short Sale Appraisals are conducted by experienced real estate professionals at the group who have an in-depth knowledge about the local market. These professionals conduct many analyses, study reports and carry out research to conclude whether the price of a property or estate is justified or not. In other words, the aim for the appraisal is to determine where the ‘fair market price’ is truly fair or not.

With the help of the fair market value, clients are able to determine the quick disposition price, the charge-off liability and the value of non-performing inventory that should be deducted. This means that without proper appraisal of the real estate a client is about to invest in, the feasibility of the decision to investment in property on the Hampton Roads cannot be gauged.

Where to Begin With Pre-Foreclosure & Short Sale Appraisals

For a real estate property to be evaluated, it needs to be inspected thoroughly. The condition of the interior and the way it has been maintained are important factors that determine the price it will fetch. However, if a property is being foreclosed, the person owing it may not be cooperative.

He may cause damage to it, refuse to allow an inspection, abandon the real estate or even neglect the place for a long time. Such conditions make the appraisal process harder and more time consuming.  Since circumstances are unique and specific to the case under question, you will need all the professional help and experience you can get at the Atlantic Appraisal Group.

An appraisal report has all the necessary information you would need to determine whether the short sale or pre-foreclosure is being conducted at a fair price or not.
