Call Key Appraisals to discuss valuations for Westchester foreclosures

Key Appraisals is experienced when it comes to bank owned properties in Yonkers, New York

Properties that have gone back to the institution's control and properties in foreclosure present special appraisal difficulties.

When dealing with a house in foreclosure, you need to know market value versus a "quick disposition" value to know your possible charge-off liability. At Key Appraisals, we have the knowledge in both presenting snapshots of market value for our mortgage originating clients, as well as "quick sale" forecasts that understand your timeline.

Key Appraisals has the experience to work with the specific dynamics of a foreclosure appraisal. For a company you can count on, contact Key Appraisals.

Owners of dwellings in foreclosure may be unwilling to allow an inspection of the house, thus presenting unique challenges. Sometimes the properties show signs of vandalism, unfortunately by the residents themselves. Or, it's likely you'll find the families have moved out or the home neglected for long periods of time.

You'll be interested in an expedited disposition if the house has gone back to REO. So you need to know and compare three values: "as-is", "as repaired", and "quick sale". These symbolize:

  • The value of the property without any work done to it
  • Possible value with the work necessary to make the home marketable at full market value - appropriate with competing homes in the neighborhood
  • Somewhere in the middle, with minimal investment in repairs - to offload the home quickly, possibly as a "fixer-upper"
Again, we understand your urgency and the unique situation of a Real Estate Owned property, as well as the special data you will need - competing listings, neighborhood trends, and so forth. You can count on Key Appraisals to take on the task of your REO with expertise and professionalism. Contact us today.
