Need help with a complicated property?
We can handle it.
We have appraisers on staff who have achieved the highest level of licensing to hold a Certified Residential license. So whether your transaction is for a manufactured home or a million-dollar investment property, we can help.
Our service offerings include:
Residential Home Appraisals: Appraisers sometimes make huge errors in valuation by using foreclosure prices in their comps for regular home sales. This doesn’t happen when you choose Empire Appraisal Services. We use real comps for accurate appraisal figures.
For Sale By Owner Appraisals: Looking to put your home or condo on the market without the assistance of a realtor? We can provide you with a detailed appraisal that will help you set a fair price that prospective buyers’ lenders are likely to approve.
PMI Removal Appraisals: Tired of paying for private mortgage insurance on your loan? Once you hit the 20 percent equity mark, have one of our appraisers provide an up to date valuation on your home. This documentation will help convince the bank to drop your PMI.
Estate / Probate Appraisals and Evaluations: Acting as the executor of a deceased loved one’s estate can be overwhelming. We will help you through this difficult time by providing specialized probate appraisal services that will satisfy IRS requirements.
Divorce Appraisals: Real estate is typically the biggest asset held by a couple. Our fast and accurate independent appraisals give you the information you need to establish the value of your property and arrive at a fair plan for asset division in the divorce.
Trust Appraisals: With our expert appraisal services, you can establish a Fair Market Value for a property held in trust. We stand behind the quality of our appraisals to give you peace of mind against any challenges the IRS or state authorities might raise as to the value of the property.
Pre-listing Appraisals: Real estate agents often like to aim high when it comes to setting listing prices. If you would like a second opinion from a neutral third party, come to us for a pre-listing appraisal. We’ll look closely at your property’s condition and comps to arrive at an accurate listing price.
Income / Investment Appraisals: Buy low, sell high is the rule in the stock market and it applies to investment properties as well. With our help, you can avoid overpaying for real estate, leaving yourself more room for the property to appreciate over time.
Foreclosure and REO Appraisals: We can provide the detailed information lenders need to decide what to do with foreclosed or Real Estate Owned properties, including accurate assessments of the property both “as is” and “as if repaired.”
