Staten Island Appraisals

The market hasn’t been too harsh in Staten Island as say Suffolk. This can be attributed to being among a few suburban areas with close proximity to Manhattan; Nassau/Westchester are others The strong school systems and affluent neighborhoods are huge contributing factors for a solid market.

Appraisals for homes in Staten Island are pretty thorough due to quality and detail of Staten Island MLS. In fact, MLS in Staten Island is the best out of all the boroughs and long island. MLS information is the 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.

The most important factor when choosing comparable sales is style. If the subject property is a ranch then it can only be compared with other ranches, splanch or cape. You must compare apples with apples. A colonial can be compared with another colonial, hi-ranch, split or Victorian. This is common for suburban areas such as Suffolk, Nassau, Staten Island and Westchester. In urban areas such as Queens, Bronx & Brooklyn the most important factor is GLA (Gross Living Area or interior sq footage). This being the case, one can compare a 2-story with a 4-story if the sq footage is

"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."
