Particular challenges can be present when dealing with owners of homes in foreclosure. They may be opposed to allowing an inspection of the home. If they abandoned the home already, they may have not taken care of the home for awhile - or even worse, caused damage to the house.

If your property has gone back to Real Estate Owned, you will interested in an expeditious disposition. However, you might want to know and examine three values: as-is, as repaired, and "quick sale." These correspond to the worth of the home without any work done to it, with the repairs due to make the property marketable at full market value consistent with competing houses in the neighborhood, and, somewhere in the middle, with minor investment in repairs - selling the property quickly, most likely as a "fixer-upper". Again, we understand your urgency and the unique situation of an REO house, in addition to the unique information you will need -- competing listings, neighborhood trends, and so forth. You can count on Astute Appraisals, Inc. to take on the appraisal of your REO with expertise and professionalism. Contact us today.
