" was very polite prior to and during the home appraisal, but unfortunately things took a turn for the worse after he left our house. While" we understand that the appraisal values are usually going to lower that a seller may hope for, our concerns go beyond a disagreement regarding the value. After receiving the report our real estate agent contacted Mr. regarding the appraisal. He was somewhat rude and told her that he could not discuss the matter with her. If we had an issue, I should contact him myself. Well - I tried. I left a voicemail and replied to his emails three times over the course of 2 weeks and he never responded. We had two separate real estate professionals review the appraisal and both found errors and concerns with the report. We created a list of questions, but instead of responding to our concerns, he has chosen to ignore us. Here is a list of questions that we sent: 1.) Why did the appraisal include an active comp? 2.) Why was there no value given for effective age verses actual age? As in why did you not include any newer comps? 3.) Why was there no adjustment for condition? This is why we had an appraisal done as our home is not like all the other homes in regard to condition, it has been completely renovated and updated including mechanically and structurally? I felt you understood that when we scheduled the appraisal. 4.) Why are two of the four comps used ranch style instead of 2 story homes? 5.) Why did you only use 3 comps as I don't see an active listing as a valid comp? There were lots of others that could have been added? Do you typically only do 3 comps? Why not 5-6? 6.) Why did you not use any homes with pools as comps? 7.) Why are none of the comps full brick? (as our house is in fact, full brick) 8.) One of your comps is older than 6 months, why not use a more recent sale since there are several available? 9.) I noticed that your value for our house happens to be the exact value of the most expensive sale ever in Sardis Forest in MLS? Did you use this in the basis for deterring the value? 10.) For comp XXXXXXXX in your report you show it as .29 of an acre but in the MLS it is actually 1.07 acres? There was no adjustment made and there should have been. In our estimation the report seems rush, with little or no adjustments made for the work that was done including the new AC, roof, windows, etc. Additionally, we have concerns about the comps that were used. Our realtor does not feel you spent the time we deserved on doing a much needed appraisal. The mistakes are unacceptable. Please find examples of comps that we feel would have given a much more accurate picture of value. These are only examples to consider but there are many others as well. We are very disappointed in the service that was provided and believe that we are entitled to question the appraisal report. We are left to hope that are message on Angie's List, along with our complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau will persuade him to respond.

"We enjoyed working with on our house appraisal. He was easy to get a hold of, and great to work with. We have used him in the past for an" appraisal so when we decided to refinance again, it was an easy decision to just call him again. He came out within a few days of our request, and had the report back to the mortgage company a few days later.

Hoping remodels boost resale value? Do this, not that

The type of home renovation you do can affect how much you get back in added resale value. Here are some of the best and worst returns on your investment.

Dear Angie: What are the differences between a home appraisal and a home inspection? — Demetrius F., Marina, California.

Selling your house? You might be tempted to forgo hiring a Realtor and sell the house yourself — after all, how hard can it be?

Yes, but you won't like what will probably happen (this is a worst case scenario, hopefully you will avoid most):

The purpose for a building permit is to ensure meeting the minimum standards for construction practices and minimum safety standards.  A contractor who works without a permit, does so because they know they are not in compliance (and to save money at your expense).  They knew they should have had inspections and permits for their work.  Who ever built the addition should be reported to both the building official as well as the Better Business Bureau.  It is ultimately the homeowner who is responsible for ensuring the proper permits have been applied for, though.

So when you apply for your permit, you will be pretending as if the work is not completed (you do not hide this fact, you just have to follow the correct process as if it hadn't been built).  Your first stop will be with zoning; can you even add an addition, do you have the proper clearances from the side, front and rear property lines.  If it is a bedroom, does the septic system (perk test) support an additional bedroom.  If your building already meets or exceeds the amount of building allowed on the site or if you do not have the clearances required from the property line, your addition may be required to be removed.  There are appeal processes and variance requests you can try before tearing down the addition (Get an architect).

If your zoning review is fine, next you go to permitting.  Here you will submit plans (drawings) of what was built.  If you do not have these plans, consider hiring an Architect to generate As-Built drawings for this use.  Hopefully the plan review comes back with no changes, or you will alread know your addition is not in compliance and may face rebuilding.  Depending on the type of construction, your zoning and your local building requirements, you will be required to have inspections of your foundation / footings, the framing, the electrical, mechancial and HVAC systems, etc. affected by the work. 

This may require digging the ground back up so the inspector can confirm foundation depth, size and draingage requirements.  The interior wall finishes (gypsum board, panelling, etc) may have to be removed in some or all areas so the framing and electrical can be inspected (If one area fails, be prepared to pull all areas down).  At each inspection, if the work is found to be lacking, then you will have to correct the work before getting permission to use the room.  If there is an electrical or safety violation found, it is possible the Building Official could declare the entire property inhabitable until the offenses are corrected (IE you are homeless until it is fixed).

As you can see, you have to hope beyond belief that the builder constructed everything correctly and that the building officials will work with you to minimize the amount of deconstruction necessary to inspect the work.

Also, you will be charged all the fees associated with plan review and permitting, and you will be charged for each inspection visit (as your builder would have been charged initially had they followed the law).

As for value, here is the real concern:  If your home burns down or faces some similar disaster, your home owners insurance will balk at paying; they will blame the illegal construction as the cause.  As for the value of your building, not having a permit will make any buyer have a difficult time getting their own insurance, thus harder to sell.  The room itself will add value to your property, if it isn't a hazard (IE permitted). 

Also, taxes are based upon assessments, which use the land records.  Building without a permit, can be seen by local officials as an attempt to avoid paying property taxes, since the land records do not show the addition.  Until the official tax records reflect an accurate statement of your building, you may face fines, tax fees and other costs associated with the improvement depending upon how long it has been there unreported.

You may wish to contact a local, licensed Architect who works with the local building department.  They will know the personel, know which forms you need to fill out first and how to protect you from an overzealous Building Official (there are exceptions and options within the Code that the Building Official may forget or ignore that an Architect can request be used to prevent tear down or damage).  Next time you go to build get the Architect first to protect yourself from what this construction firm did to you.

Good luck!

     If you are having a friendly divorce you might want to know what doing the repairs would add to the sale price. I think your best bet would actually be to talk to a realtor as to what they think the difference would be. Then get a couple of estimates from a local contractor or contractors.

     Being in a divorce situation I would think sell as is and move on as quickly as you can. Renovation of a home can be a stress on a good marraige and it would probably be worse if in divorce proceedings.

 

Good luck Don

I phoned his office twice, once leaving a message with his administrative assistant, and the second leaving a message directly on his voice mail. It has been over a week now, and I have not even received a return phone call.

He really helped us out when our original appraiser fell through. He did the appraisal within two days and turned it in 2 days later. He was great to work with, I would highly recommend him.

Bill was on time and sent us a very detail report. If my taxes are reduced, I will be real happy. The county said our property was worth one thing and Bill said it was worth something else.

Very responsive. Heard from Bill shortly after I emailed him with a need for an appraisal. We set a date, he showed up on time, he was professional, he was courteous, and he appeared to be very proficient in his assessment. He gave me a time frame as to when I could expect the final appraisal. He was early in the delivery of the appraisal and offered ...More to answer any questions we had. Easy to work with. Would use again.

We contacted Bill on a Wednesday. I informed him that I needed a home appraisal done by Saturday. He was able to work with our schedule and did the appraisal that Friday. He showed up promptly at the location where we set the appointment. He was professional, courteous, and stayed within his scheduled time. He mentioned that it would take 2-3 days ...More to get the appraisal finished and he delivered on time. Once we got the report we were very satisfied. The report was very detailed, accurate, and informative.
One thing I really appreciated is that he answered his phone each time I reached out to him. Never did I have to leave a voice mail.
I would definitely use his services again in the future.

I actually don't recall how much the service cost us, but I do recall that the service was done quick and accurately. My apology for not writing a review sooner.
