"I HIGHLY recommend
Appraisal! An Excellent, Professional Service! I recently had my house inspected by
Appraisal" and received excellent service from beginning to end. When making my appointment, the individual I spoke with was courteous and accommodating to meet my timeframe of the needed service. Day of service the inspector, Mr.
King, was prompt, professional and very knowledgeable. Mr.
explained the process and addressed all of my concerns. I don't normally write reviews, but Mr.
's insightfulness and attention to detail is worthy of a review. On a scale of 1 to 5, I give
Appraisal a 5!

"We wanted an idea about the value of our house after living here a while. We learned that - if you plan to refinance - the bank or mortgage company will want to" do their own assessment, but we were happy with this report and it proved to be similar to the one our bank did later.

-Jan E.

Dear Angie: What are the similarities and differences between a home appraisal and a home inspection?

Bank-owned properties often cover-up serious structural problems with quick and cheap cosmetic fixes. Avoid the problem by knowing these simple inspection tips.

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 on time, professional, courteous and he cares. He has a process that he uses so he does not miss anything. You can count on that his work is done completely and with integrity.
I had concerns about the inspection once I moved in and

took the time (over an hour and free of charge) to sit down with me and go through the inspection and talk about my concerns.
What an exceptional experience! I trust

Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was great! He promptly emailed me back after my initial inquiry. On the phone he answered all my questions and gave me a run through of what he will do and how long it will take. On the date of the appraisal, he arrived on time and was very courteous and friendly and put me right at ease. The entire process took no time at all, and he promised me a week turn around and delivered on time. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to hire him again. Job well done.

It was very confusing the way that it was written up. If you are selling your house, they tell you what you need to do in order to sell it, like recommendations for painting the interior etc and they have all of the contractors to do that work.

See above. Other than being misled by the offer, ie-not realizing that the reason for the appraisal was to obtain a mortgage only, I have no way to rate this service. Please note, we did not use this service and have nothing negative or positive to say about this company. Angie's List ought to have an Overall Rating for NA, like they do for the specifics.

We completed an application with
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
in Grove City for a mortgage refinance on November 17, 2014, with a 30-day rate lock. The appraisal report was completed on November 24th. I contacted the bank on
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
. 9th for a status update, and was told the loan was in underwriting. We heard nothing from Union, even after our lock expired on
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
17th. I contacted them again on
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
23rd and was told it was a busy time of year and they hadn't completed our paperwork. By this time, Union's advertised rate had dropped, and I asked if we would be able to get the lower rate. I was told our rate didn't really expire until January 2nd (despite the signed application), but that if we still hadn't closed, we'd get the lower rate. Meanwhile, we had to pay our January mortgage with our current lender at our higher rate because Union hadn't completed the paperwork. We received a phone call on January 8th that they needed a W-2 that I had already submitted. Once that was submitted, they were ready to close. I asked about the lower rate and was told they'd have to look into it. Union came back and said they were sorry, even though our lock had expired they would not honor their current rate. The best they would do was refund $150 of our application fee at closing. Rather than
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
the application fee and have to start over at another bank, we will schedule our closing with Union, but I am disgusted by their inefficiency and lack of responsibility. The loan did not close because THEY did not do what was required in the time required, yet we are the ones literally paying the price. If you're looking for a low-cost refinance, go with Guardian Savings instead. We used them twice in Cincinnati with zero problems, and had I known they would write loans in Columbus, I'd have stayed with them.

We wanted an appraisal of the home as we were planning to sell it as we thought that it was in need of so much repair that the easiest and smartest thing to do would be to just sell it. We contacted ONCE Appraisals and asked if it was possible to have the appraisal on Saturday of that week.
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was available on Saturday which was very convenient for us! We shared with
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
the reason for the appraisal (preparing to sell the home) when we made the appraisal appointment. On the day of the appraisal, after touring the home,
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
asked if we thought about renting it out. We told him we didn't want to be bothered with the rental process as it sounded like too much of a hassle. But,
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
gave us a lot of information and advice that completely changed our mind about renting the home!
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
took the time to go through room by room - after he had already toured the home to conduct the appraisal!! - and let us know what we should fix whether we chose to sell it or rent it, and what we should fix if we decided to rent it. Turns out the home wasn't in as bad a shape as we thought, and the cost to fix it up wouldn't be nearly as expensive as we thought....which was a complete surprise and relief to me and my family!
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
indicated he would provide us the appraisal report by the following Wednesday (three days), and, true to his word, we received the appraisal on Wednesday. The appraisal report was very thorough, and included pics of the inside and outside of the house.
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
also indicated that he would provide us comps in our area to assist us in our decision to sell or rent the house. Again, he delivered as promised and provided additional information on properties for sale and rent in our area. The information was great!

We are still weighing our options on whether to rent or sell, but we feel so much better informed after having

conduct the appraisal and do the research for us.
Plano Property Appraisers Provider Name Locked
was a very nice guy - we had several good belly laughs over lots of topics - and he shared his experiences which really made us feel at ease and that we could trust him. Overall, it was a great experience, we are very pleased, and glad we chose

to perform our appraisal!
