Residential

We provide expert appraisals of a wide variety of residential properties. Appraisals are an important part of the home buying process. A real estate appraisal establishes a property's market value – the likely sales price it would bring if offered in an open and competitive real estate market. Lenders require appraisals when buyers use their new homes as security for their mortgages. An appraisal provides the lender with an assurance that the property will sell for at least the amount of money it is lending.
