"We set up an appointment with from to appraise our home prior to listing it for sale based on the previous reviews" on Angie's List. We live in a neighborhood that has not had any recent homes on the and is in a somewhat tricky area to find comparables. We were very pleased with her work. She arrived on time for the inspection and spent over an hour going through the house, taking measurements of the rooms, noting updates and spent a lot of time considering the area and home features. sent our 21 page appraisal that had extensive detail and explanation of factors driving the appraisal one day later. She was efficient and very professional. Highest recommendations.

" I bought the home around Sept and started noticing cracks around the fireplace. I called a foundation company and they said there was 20 thousand dollars worth" of structural damage. This appraiser states that that is not his job. But I saw cracks in the plaster before I bought the house that were repaired and new there was a problem prior, but thought that it was fixed. He should have noticed the same thing. DO NOT USE HIM, he obviously does not know when there is a problem and you will pay dearly.

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?

If you own a residential property, it's important you understand what mold is doing to your home.

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

was recommended by a real estate agent, I wish I would have sought a second opinion. It took two weeks to get scheduled to conduct the appraisal; that should have been my first warning. He gave me an excuse he was have a medical procedure, so I let it go. During the appraisal was ...More polite and professional; I thought he was doing a thorough job. So, desiring a rapid turn around I paid my bill promptly. - It is now 3 and 1/2 weeks later and I still don't have an appraisal report! He emailed last week and said he was having a medical procedure... yes, the same medical procedure he used as an excuse earlier, and I would have my report 3 days ago. - No, I don't have the report. At this point I'm seeking advice from an attorney on how to proceed.

I needed an appraisal in order to sell my home because the 3 realtors who looked at my home gave me suggested listing prices $90,000 apart. The appraisal I received was accurate and consistent with the realtor who priced my home for the most money. My home sold for that amount.

We appreciated that given short notice , he was able to make an appointment to meet us at the house within that same week. He arrived on time, was very personable & efficiently completed the home appraisal. He emailed us a detailed appraisal report, with several comps, in a very short time. He also offered a discount for having used Angies List. :)

was available within a week of calling to set an appointment. She arrived on time at the appraisal site and had done research prior to the appointment to familiarize herself with the neighborhood. She provided the written report within 2 days of the appraisal visit. The report is professional and contains excellent documentation.

All went well. We chose because of her good rating on Angie's List and her reviewers were right. She is friendly, professional and thorough. We had to postpone our original appraisal date due to some unforeseen circumstances but she was flexible and understanding about it. The report was complete and contained all the information ...More we needed. There aren't many ranch homes in the area to use as comps but she was able to find the right ones.
