Occupants of properties in foreclosure could be unwilling to allow an inspection of the home, thus presenting unique challenges. Sometimes the subjects have been vandalized, unfortunately at the hands of the former residents themselves. Or, it's common to discover nobody has occupied the house for months or the home languishing in disrepair for extended periods of time.

For a home that has changed to Real Estate Owned, you typically will want it off your hands as quickly as possible. In any case, you'll still want to consider three ways of determining the value of the subject property:

  • As Repaired.  Value with the work called for to make the house marketable at full market value - comparable with competing homes in the area
  • As-is.  The market value of the house without any work performed
  • Quick sale.  With a minor investment in repairs - to get rid of the property quickly, probably to someone who'd prefer to finish the job themselves
Again, we understand your timeline and the special situation of a Real Estate Owned house, in addition to the unique data you'll need - competing listings, neighborhood trends, and the like.  You can count on Bobkat Appraisal Services to handle the appraisal of your REO with expertise and professionalism.  Contact us today.
