As an heir, I found referrals for appraisers in the area near our estate property in WA. Because I live in MT and do not know any appraisers in that area, I read on-line referrals, then called several firms to solicit bids both on cost and time for performance.
at
Evaluations in Loon Lake WA offered the best bid. He completed the project within the time estimated and provided a 38 page report including similar listings with pictures, sales of similar properties in the recent past, and a sensitive analysis of the property based on its unique characteristics (two homes, one a dome, on a lakeside acreage next to a unique 1000 acre wildlife reserve). Our family is very appreciative of
's timely service and recommend him as an appraiser to others in NE WA who may have need of his professional skills.

I found
through a blog many years ago. I am a real estate agent and run a brokerage firm. Since then he has been our main go to appraiser for many of the agents in the firm when it comes to getting help pricing a hard to price property before it goes on the MLS.
He is very thorough, and sometimes knocks on doors if he really needs to see a comp on the inside.
I must say, sometimes he can be a little
on his appraisals, but I think that is from him wanting to be so accurate. We plan to continue to hire him.

I wanted my house appraised before I put it on the
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
to sell because I had had two R.E. agents tell me a price that i considered was based on houses in my neighborhood . I didn't want a low-ball price. I wanted a more accurate
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
price based on my property's characteristics, not my neighbors. Anybody can sell a great house at a low price, but what is the right price for an unusual property? I wanted a price based on real comparables.
I called the Bearoff office and left a message explaining what I was looking for.
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
called me back shortly afterwards and we set up a date for two weeks later. The next day,he sent me a list of documents that he wanted to have copies of, and a copy of his contract and bill. I got all that together, including the payment check, and had it ready for him when he arrived.
He arrived on time, with computer, tape measure, and notebook. I left him alone to look around the house, but stayed where he could find me to ask questions. When he was finished going over the house, he came and sat down at the dining room table and we went over his questions and my paperwork. Then he went out to measure the house, to see if it agreed with the documents I had given him, and it had. He said he would have the appraisal to me in a week, and he did.
He was polite and knowledgeable, just the kind of professional one wants to deal with. I would use him again, without even looking at his competition. In these kinds of situations, thoroughness, experience, and integrity are more important than price. And he has all 3.

After submitting an inquiry, I was promptly contacted to schedule an appointment, and I was able to schedule an appointment very quickly.

showed up within 10 minutes of the scheduled time. He explained to me the appraisal process, and that he would provide a retrospective appraisal (as of December 2013), which is the appropriate appraisal for the purpose of determining 2014 property tax liability. He also provided me a lot of very helpful information about how the appeal process works. He did a thorough review of our property, and provided a detailed report, along with a "plain language" explanation in less than 3 days. He did the inspection on a Thursday, and provided the report that Sunday, so that I would have it in time for my appeal deadline on Monday. He also responded promptly to a question that I had. I would definitely recommend this provider, and will work with them again if I need another home appraisal in the future. Their website is also excellent, and contains a lot of helpful information about the different types of appraisals.

I found the company on the internet, from their website. After we paid the money to The
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
(also know as autoloss.com) I did an internet
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
on the company, and it included complaints by the Better Business Bureau. (If I had done that sooner, we would not have used them).

We forwarded the repair bill, the sticker price of the car to them. They wrote a report, Vehicle Diminution of
Value Report, comparing our car to the value of other cars and said that we should get $10,300 from the insurance company. The report was pretty wordy, had several spelling errors, the wrong body shop listed, and they did not use local car comparisons. The insurance ended up calling a local dealer, and completely disregarded the comparisons in the report. We settled with the insurance company for $7000.

I would not recommend this company for this service.

I contacted
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
on 7/3/14 and explained my situation (I've been downsizing my elderly mother's home, now that she's in assisted living). I emailed detailed information about the townhouse condo to
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
for his reference. We made an appointment for 7/5/14, where
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
arrived on time for the appointment.
When
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
arrived, he and I toured the townhouse ... I pointed out areas of cosmetic fixing that would be left to the new owners while
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
took notes and mapped out the rooms with measurements. We discussed various repairs that were still in progress (or scheduled to be done before offering the townhouse for sale), so that
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
would have an accurate understanding of the condition of the property when it became available for sale. I paid
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
with a check before he left that day.
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
promised the appraisal within 3 days, of which he delivered ahead of time -- despite the complexity of the comparisons that were needed for the appraisal.
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
called me once he emailed the appraisal to me. I returned his call after reviewing the document, in order to discuss the appraisal and the complex factors that went into the final valuation. I appreciated his detailed information and his recommended approach to set a selling price for the property.
Overall, I found
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
to be extremely knowledgeable, clear in his communications, professional, and pleasant to work with.
I highly recommend
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
as a Certified Residential appraiser.

Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
had one appraisal ahead of mine, but was able to still schedule quickly. And, in truth, I think he spent more time here than he had first expected, as we had quite a few deferred maintenance issues to walk through. And we received his report a few days later. The report was interesting, as I have not seen these before. Locating recent comps was not easy as there aren't many. And the comps used for "as is" versus "good condition" were different as
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
looked for homes that sold citing needed improvement areas for the "as is" appraisal, versus those apparently selling in good condition for the other. And so the idea was to locate similar properties and then apply a number of plus/minus adjustments as measured against the other properties. For instance, our property value actually got a boost for "location", as we have a school and recreation field out back rather than other homes. So that type of thing. The "as is" value came in somewhat where expected, through I think it will actually cost a little more to actually bring the property up to spec. The "good condition" value came in a little higher than I expected as compared to where Zillow.com pegs our property compared to neighbors. But the comps on this one were more difficult, with the starting point being somewhat higher valued properties, and the plus/minus offsets did not really bring the assessed value down to Zillow or
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
County levels. Though it would certainly be good news were we actually putting on the
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
. Bottom-line, yes, I would recommend
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
. We needed an objective 3rd party opinion, one that could also serve in court if needed. And I think we got what we needed.

Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
came out and reviewed our property. She then attempted to find comps in our area (there are very few and none that are really very similar). From this limited information she gave an appraisal that was 5% less than a bank approved appraiser gave us 2 years ago even though prices in our area have

5-7% in that time! Her explanation was that people aren't looking for houses as big as ours in

answered my voice mail the same day and we set up an appointment to do the appraisal within a few days.
She arrived early and did a very thorough job. She was very pleasant and professional.
I received a 20 page report via email in less than 48 hours.
I thought the price she set for the property was reasonable. She provided pictures and extensive documentation.
I would highly recommend
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
and would use her again.
