QUEENS APPRAISALS

The market hasn’t been too harsh in Queens County as say Suffolk. This can be attributed to it’s proximity to Manhattan and being a “more bang for your buck” option. Low taxes and community strength are other factors in a strong market presence.

Appraisals for homes in Queens are pretty thorough due to quality and detail of MLS. MLS information is readily available for most properties providing details on year built, interior photos, basement details, amenities (such as porch, lot size, patio, deck, fireplace, central air conditioning, etc.) garage, views, days on market, types of financing, broker info and so on. This is a great thing because primary appraisal software such as Comps Inc and Geo data don’t provide detailed interior information.

Real Estate Appraisers in Queens County, The most important factor when choosing comparable sales in Queens is interior & exterior square footage (GLA & Lot Size). Land is very valuable in Queens and it’s important to compare similar sized properties with each other. This being the case, one can compare a 2-story with a 4-story if the sq footage is similar. Amenities are also very important such as cac, garage, patio, deck, porch, balcony, fireplace etc. When appraising in urban areas such as Queens it’s all about choosing comparables from similar neighborhoods. This way all the sales share similar socio-economic influences. The way banks keep track of this is by looking at the locations of the sales on a location map. If any sale is on the other side of an “artery” or main road then it’s validity is in question. Such “arteries” include Grand Central Parkway, Northern Blvd, Jamaica Ave, Astoria Blvd, etc.

"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 Fontana - Brooklyn, 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 - Bronx, 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."

Richard Collins - Queens, NY
