What to Expect in Your Appraisal

Once you order an appraisal from Homeland Appraisals Inc, you will get the following in a signed, digital and certified appraisal report:

  • Paid Invoice & Business Card
  • Appraisal Form (Depending on property type)
  • Subject Exterior & Interior Photos
  • 4 Closed Comparable Sales
  • Comparable Photos
  • Building Sketch
  • Location Map
  • Copy of Our State Issued Certification & Insurance

(See Sample Appraisal Reports)

Your home will be valuated using the Sales Comparison Approach in which we will use 4 recent closed sales dated within 1 year and located within 1 mile. We will make various adjustments for any discrepancies between your property and the comparable property. Some cause for adjustments may include:

  • Time Adjustments (For Declining Market)
  • Location (Busy-rd, School, Commercial, etc.)
  • Site
  • GLA
  • Bedroom/Bath
  • Basement
  • Amenities (Porch, Patio, Deck, CAC, F/P, Pool, Radiant Heating, etc.)
  • Quality of Construction (Brick/Frame, Attached/Detached/Semi-Attached)
  • Age
  • Condition
  • Garage

Once the adjustments have been made we will then average the post-adjusted sale prices and arrive at a fair market value for your property. When doing this it is possible to give more weight to one sale over another depending on comparability.

Our Appraisal Firm Has Been Featured In:

The New York Times The Real Deal Magazine The New Yorker

"These guys gave me exactly what I needed - a true fair market value. I was looking to list my home for sale and realized that brokers & online sites like zillow were giving me different figures for my property. I called up Homeland and they told me that they will appraise it as if they were appraising it for a bank. They said that this way it would reflect the true value of a home as it would be what a bank is willing to lend on. Lo and behold their appraisal came in at exactly the same amount the bank's appraiser came in for the mortgage loan. If you want a true unbiased opinion of value, call these guys up - they definitely know what they're doing."

James Sanphy – Yonkers, NY

"It was such a pleasure working with Homeland; they were very flexible with their scheduling and fulfilled their promise of a 24-Hr Turnaround! (They saved me from my procastination!) The appraisal was for tax grievance purposes and it eventually helped me to significantly reduce my property taxes. Their certified appraisal met all the requirements set forth by the town. I would highly recommend them in the future!"

Stacey Fanara – Rye, NY

"I used this company to help settle my Father's estate. They knew what I needed even before I had a chance to explain. They provided me with a certified retrospective appraisal dated at the date of passing and were very professional throughout the whole process. I recommended them to my neighbor who was thinking of listing her home and she was very satisfied as well. Call these guys up, you can't go wrong."
