Call WalshStreet  Appraisals to order appraisals of Los Angeles foreclosures

WalshStreet Appraisals is the company you should trust when you need appraisals for bank owned properties in Los Angeles, California

Homes that have returned to the institution's control and houses in foreclosure create various appraisal difficulties.

When there is a home in foreclosure, it's important to ascertain market value versus a "quick disposition" assessment to know your potential charge-off liability. WalshStreet Appraisals has the experience in both presenting snapshots of market value for our mortgage servicing clients, as well as "quick sale" forecasts that understand your time constraints.

WalshStreet Appraisals has the expertise to work with the unique dynamics of a foreclosure appraisal. For a company you can rely on, contact WalshStreet Appraisals.

Particular challenges may be present when dealing with owners of houses in foreclosure. They may be opposed to allowing an inspection of the house. Sometimes the houses have been vandalized, often by the former residents. Or, it's likely you'll find nobody has lived in house for months or the home languishing in disrepair for long periods of time.

For real estate that has returned to Real Estate Owned, you most likely will want it off your hands as quickly as possible. In any case, you'll still want to consider three ways of looking at the value of the real estate at hand:

  • As Repaired. Possible market value with the repairs required to make the house marketable at full market value - in accordance with competing properties in the area
  • As-is. The market value of the home without any work performed
  • Quick sale. Somewhere in between, with minimal investment in repairs - to get rid of the property quickly, most likely to someone inclined to finish the job themselves
Again, we understand your time line and the special situation of an REO home, in addition to the specific information you'll need - competing listings, neighborhood trends, and the like. You can count on WalshStreet Appraisals to handle the task of your bank owned property with expertise and professionalism. Contact us today.
