Appraisal Services

Residential Real Estate Appraisals

Whether you decide to sell your home on your own or with the help of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal can help you make a more informed decision when determining your selling price. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, which is different than the interest of real estate agents. Our fees are calculated on our efforts to perform the appraisal report and and aren’t related to the sales price. Seeking a professional appraisal is a trusted way to decide what an applicable sales price is for your home so you don’t come up short or have your house on the market for an unnecessarily long time.

Divorce Settlement Appraisals

Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two options when discussing common real estate – it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can “buy out” the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to order an appraisal of the residence. A divorce appraisal needs a well-supported, expert appraisal document that can be submitted to a judge. AD Brown Appraisals pledges to give you an exceptional level of service with courtesy and top notch analysis. We are experts on providing for the particular needs of a divorce situation.

Tax Appeal Appraisals

It’s quite possible you’re paying too much in property taxes if you live in an area where property values have depreciated. Ad Valorem taxes are determined by a previous assessment of your house, so if prices have declined in your neighborhood, you can appeal your assessment and save money. When building your case, an appraisal is your best evidence. Let us provide you with a professional, accurate appraisal on which to base your appeal.

Estate Appraisals

The job of settling an estate, while stressful, is not to be taken lightly. As an executor, you have been given the authority to carry out the wishes of the deceased as quickly and with as much dignity as possible. You can count on us to act expeditiously and with as much compassion to the feelings of everyone left behind. Attorneys and accountants depend on our understanding when calculating real property values for estates, which require a monetary value being placed on real property. Sometimes, the parties involved will have different requirements of how the appraisal process should work. Our experience in estate appraisals will satisfy all parties involved.
