"She is so professional and thorough. Her service is complete and on time. She provided me with all I needed for handling my estate matters. She was also available" to speak with my CPA if necessary. I have been very satisfied with the service and support from her. I will continue to use her for any real estate appraisal needs, including if I want to get an idea as to what a property may be worth before buying it. I do highly recommend her.

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.

As prime real estate season approaches, and you ready your house for the market, you might be tempted to forgo hiring a Realtor and represent the listing yourself. After all, how hard can it be to sell your own home?

Angie's Answers

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 polite and personable, showed up on time, and delivered the appraisal before 5 pm the same day, as promised. No complaints. Very informative, helpful, and answered all my questions.

was very informative and helpful. He was open to many of my subsequent questions and gave advice. He later offered some of his own thoughts and recommendations that assisted me but in no way would help him.
I was also able to communicate with him , even very late at night, while he was working on the appraisal.

responded immediately to the request for service. He spoke with my mother in great detail on the phone and explained that she just needed a less expensive service. He spent a great deal of time on the initial call as well as the actual day of appraisal answering all questions. He and his team went well beyond the required service and really put my mother at ease.

and his team are outstanding professionals and dedicated to their clients. I highly recommend their services and would definitely use them again.

Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
is very professional and responsive: he gets back to you very quickly if you have any questions or concerns.
I needed to get a 5-story brownstone appraised for estate tax purposes as well as for prepping our eventual listing.
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
got back to me within hours of my request, and we had an appraisal scheduled within a week. The appraisals were returned to me on schedule via email and post. The initial figures were less than what I expected, and once I confirmed my findings with other listings, I contacted
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
with my concerns. He immediately reviewed the appraisal and compared his comps to mine, and within a couple of days agreed that the property needed to be compared with a tighter grouping of comps. Once he did this, his new value approached what I expected, and he re-issued the appraisals at no additional charge.
The property is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where its address matters almost more than the condition of the building: looking at a comp between Central Park West and Columbus is far different than one a block away, between Columbus and
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
.
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was not hesitant to admit that a mistake had been made, and was very quick to fix that mistake. I have tremendous respect for his doing that.
don't let the $2,300 bill discourage you from using
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
: while a little high, remember I needed two appraisals of a 6,000 sq. ft. building, in a Landmarked section of the Upper West Side -- it was a very complicated appraisal, when compared to a 1,500 sq. ft. ranch home on a corner lot somewhere else. Be more concerned about his customer service and desire to do the best job possible. I would use
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
again any time, and recommend that others do so as well.

The appraiser (

First off, I want to say that
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
offers a discount for a review on any website--no matter whether it's "good, bad, or ugly". I'm going to give him a very favorable review, and it's not because of the discount. What the discount does is ensure that I take the time to write it, since it's so easy to plan to spend the time doing this, and less easy to actually do it!



I was referred to
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
by CPA
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
Wendroff, who in turn was referred to be by a top developer in the
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
/DC
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
. I needed a retrospective appraisal for the time I inherited a house--not knowing at the time I probably should have done it at that time. I had actually just sold the house, but was still allowed access. I needed the price ASAP so that I could then figure out what kind of capital gains tax I might have to pay/if I had to purchase another property to put them off. It was a Wednesday right before the
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
holidays, and
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was going to have a short hospital visit the next Tuesday. Understanding my need for speed,
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was able to come to the house in a couple days, and got the appraisal to me in another 4, racing to do it before going into the hospital, when he usually takes a week. I could tell it was not a rush job, however.



When he sent me the appraisal, I was actually away in the mountains where I had very little signal, and he was very patient when my calls kept getting dropped or e-mails didn't make it through. He had told me to call him if there were any concerns or issues. There were a couple small things he missed, but fixed them when I pointed them out. He is very familiar with the area, and did 5 comps (more than usual). They all seemed fair. I gave the appraisal to a relative who is in banking, and he said he thought
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
did a good job.



We had a nice chat when he was at the house and a few times via e-mail--he treated me like a friend than a paycheck. I looked him up some and found some interesting blogs that's he's done, too. I got some good ideas on a small claims case my husband is planning!



I don't plan to buy or sell any more houses, but if I did I would definitely use him again.

delivered a great product and made the process very easy with good phone and email follow up, despite the fact that we were living six time zones away (Europe) from the property being appraised (in
Claremont Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
