Long Island City Real Estate Appraising Articles

Sample Reviews


Appraiser showed up on time and asked questions and inspected the property as expected. However 2 weeks latter when I received the report our house was undervalued. I asked if the appraiser understood my home's area and she responded that she did however the report stated that based on homes in my area there is no price difference between a 3 bedroom from a 4 bedroom. having spoken to many Realtors in my area this is not the case. The report also did not reflect any difference in price for a larger size of lot, in some cases my plot was 2.5 times the size of the comp. I didn't expect to get top dollar on my appraisal as our house needs some minor cosmetic work. Houses around us that are 4 bedrooms have sold around 350,000. The feeling I received when reading the explanations on the report was one that the appraiser didn't understand our area and was word-smithed to cover her lack of understanding. Like any home mortgage the loan requires the appraisal to come in at value of the loan, this faulty appraisal did not meet the loan requirements and the loan was canceled.

Rudofski was invited to appraise this property for the purposes of divorce proceedings -- by my husband. I was home and discovered the walk through in progress, unannounced and in the presence of our small son. Mr. Rudofski refused to identify himself. He was asked to leave and did not do so. Following Mr. Rudofski and my husband through the home, Mr. Rudofski took no measurements, inspected few to none of the rooms (most locked). Any appraisal Mr. Rudofski generates will be based upon prior documentation rather than direct inspection and ability to make a valid assessment of property value.
So, if you are looking for an appraiser that will do substandard work that may not withstand scrutiny, feel free to disregard my review. Otherwise be advised and move on to the next provider.

Came 20 minutes earlier than the appointment and walked around the property to a**** the value. So when i arrived he actually have started the work. With friendly conversation he explained what is the procedure. I have experience with other appraisers and they didn't even measure the dimension of the condo that was for appraisal. This was my first impression that stayed -- good job.
He finds small details that you haven't noticed about your property that will help the value to be propperly evaluated.
I asked him about improvements that can be done on the property before it went on the

. I received some guiding points which were very good.
The report came on the assigned date. It was thorough and got me the numbers for selling it and renting it. Great comparison tool for a property provided by Tyke.

to visit the home was

. He was easy to get a hold of and was very flexible in his availability as he was able to make it out on a snowy Saturday. He made a difficult task much easier.
He was able to provide appraisals for the Date of Death and current house value. The house recently sold and the current value appraisal was spot on.
He was also available to answer questions from our lawyer handling the estate.
Great job

We are currently undergoing an extensive remodel of, and addition to, our house (self-constructed). Given the current housing
Long Island City Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
and interest rates, we have been wanting to refinance as soon as possible. However, we also did not want to start the process of refinancing only to have an appraiser and lender tell us an extensive punch list needed to be completed prior to going through on the refi.

provided his recommendations on which elements would be most important to complete from the appraiser's perspective. He gave us practical advice on specific tasks. He also gave us advice on a few more global details - i.e. how unfinished construction is viewed and handled by appraisers and lenders. Our house is unique in that it is built to PassivHaus standards - i.e. super-insulated, air-tight construction, triple pane windows, solar panels, etc. He recommended that we look into specific lenders and request an appraiser who has experience in green building (to properly assess the added value unique to our house).
We found him to be very accessible and professional, as other commenters have noted. Thanks,

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.
Long Island City Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
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.

is excellent - professional and I have no doubt that his fund of knowledge is probably better than the people who do the appraisal for tax purposes. He answered all my questions and basically let me get into the "property tax world" finally understanding it and knowing that his information would be the most accurate available. He also clearly is a person of integrity

was very hard to get a hold of after he did the initial home visit. I would have to email him twice to get a response from him. I understand that this is his busy time of year, and he did share with me that he had a family emergency that he was dealing with, but it was frustrating not to have a response. I was promised the appraisal on a Wednesday. Then it was Friday. Then it was Monday. Finally, on Tuesday I get the report, but by now our 10 day window had passed (we were buying a piece of property and we had 10 days to get the inspections complete, etc.) so the report was really a moot point. He did call on Friday and gave me a verbal estimate, but he was still working on the report at that point so his verbal estimate was just that, an estimate. When I emailed him on Tuesday and requested a refund because we were past our deadline and the report was now worthless to me, he replied back to me with an extremely unprofessional and belligerent email, getting all legal on me. It would have been a nice professional gesture on his part to at least recognize my frustration and offer me a discount. He took no blame for the situation. I will not be using him again, nor would I recommend him to my friends/neighbors.
