There are lots of reasons people call on Aztec Appraisal ServicesTo a lot of us, an appraisal just looks like a line item on the settlement sheet for a home purchase or refinance. And while there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation methods that may seem more cost-effective than an appraisal, almost all lenders still want a local expert because the stakes are incredibly high. You might believe that getting a mortgage is the only reason you should get an appraisal, but there are other cases when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might come in handy.

Settling a divorce with less stressA divorce is often complicated by the difficult decision of who keeps the property, and it can be an especially heartbreaking experience for both parties. Regardless of the situation, it's a good idea to order an appraisal from Aztec Appraisal Services so both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their home.
If the parties want to sell the home, they'll have a clearer picture of what price to set. And on the flip side, if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've gotten a fair evaluation.
Settling an estate with peace of mindThe loss of a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Market Value for the residential property involved. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of discretion.
Unlike wealthier individuals, most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these affairs. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, knowing the precise value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten a fair deal.
Sell your home quickly at the right priceWhether you want to sell your home on your own or use the assistance of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal will help you make a better educated decision regarding your asking price. An appraiser has no vested interest in what price the house sells for, unlike real estate agents. Our fees depend on our efforts to finish the appraisal report and and aren't related to the sales price.
On a daily basis, we examine the difference in value items like an extra bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make. Getting a professional appraisal is a reliable way to decide what improvements will add value and what an appropriate sales price is for your home - so you don't come up short or have your house on the market an unnecessarily long time - because we're experts in knowing how long homes are one the market.
