My company discovered that an elderly couple was paying taxes based on a non-homestead rate. We notified them and they went to their local assessment office and was able to be reimbursed for the prior two years at a savings of over $1600 per year. They build the home new and didn't understand that they had to file the homestead sales affidavit themselves.
Stanley and Brenda sent me a letter that stated my company had made a big difference in their lives. They were expecting their third child. Their finances were extremely tight. While I was at their home conducting the physical appraisal inspection, I took the time to sit down and explain to them what the closing costs were in their purchase agreement settlement costs. Neither their sales agent nor the broker that handled the real estate transaction when they purchased the property two years prior explained what the costing costs were. I took each item line by line and explained what they were for. That's what makes Nicholson Appraisal Services, Inc. different from the majority of companies as a provider of appraisal services. We go the extra mile, to "Make a positive difference in other people's lives".
My clients (banks, credit unions, mortgage companies, ect) indicate that they hardly ever have an underwriter contact them for extra comparables or for an addendum explanation. My company always puts five to six comparables within each appraisal report. The typical appraisal report contains only three comparables and they are charged for each extra comparable. Our reports always contain an explanation within the addendum section explaining what the adjustments were based on within the sales grid. This allows the reader to understand the methodology that was used within the adjustment sales grid. This also helps them to understand the reasoning of how we arrived at the final Estimate of Value for the Appraisal Report.
Nicholson Appraisal Services' reports always contain an explanation within the addendum section explaining what the adjustments were based on within the sales grid.
