Call Winn Appraisal Services when you need appraisals on Washington foreclosures

Winn Appraisal Services is the company you should trust when you need appraisals for foreclosures in the Portland metropolitan area. 

Properties that have reverted to the institution's holding and houses in foreclosure create special appraisal difficulties.

You should differentiate the meanings of "market value" and a "quick disposition" assessment to know your possible write-down liability when dealing with a house in foreclosure. Winn Appraisal Services has the background in both providing snapshots of market value for our mortgage originating clients, in addition to "quick sale" forecasts that understand your urgency.

Winn Appraisal Services has the expertise to work with the unique dynamics of a foreclosure appraisal. Contact Winn Appraisal Services for a company you can .

Specific challenges may be present when dealing with owners of houses in foreclosure. They could be uncooperative to allowing an inspection of the house. If they left the house already, they might have not taken care of the house for quite awhile - or worse, caused damage to the property.

For real estate that has returned to Real Estate Owned, you probably will want it off your hands as quickly as possible. In any case, you'll still want to consider three angles for looking at the value of the subject property:

  • As Repaired. Value with the repairs needed to make the home marketable at full market value - commensurate with similar homes in the neighborhood
  • As-is. The market value of the property without any work performed
  • Quick sale. With minor investment in repairs - to get rid of the home quickly, most likely to someone inclined to finish the job themselves
Again, we understand your time line and the specific situation of a bank owned home, in addition to the special data you will need - competing listings, neighborhood trends, and the like. You can count on Winn Appraisal Services to handle the task of your REO professionally and efficiently. Contact us today.
