Home Measurement Services

In today’s highly competitive real estate industry, there has never been a greater need for accurate reporting of a property’s true living area as all too often the gross living area reported on public records differs from what exists.

If you are selling your home by owner, floor plans are an awesome marketing tool. We can help you design a brochure to list your home.

Optimizing Home Sales with Precision Measurements

If you’re selling your home independently, floor plans become an indispensable marketing tool. With our professional expertise, we can assist in crafting an attractive brochure to showcase your property. This invaluable resource allows potential buyers to gain a thorough understanding of your home before scheduling a viewing. It helps ensure that the individuals coming to view your property are genuinely interested, saving you the inconvenience of unnecessary appointments.

For realtors, both the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and your Broker-In-Charge mandate an accurate and detailed report of your listings. Hence, there are numerous reasons why obtaining a professional measurement of your property listings is beneficial.

You may be dealing with a large or complex property that presents measurement challenges, or as an agent, you may simply want to avoid potential liability for inaccuracies in the square footage listed in the MLS. Our home measurements and floor plans stand as legal documents with a multitude of applications, ranging from individual home sales to tax protests.

    Understanding the value of your property is a crucial factor in many of life's most significant decisions. This is where a residential appraisal comes into play. A residential appraisal is a comprehensive analysis that determines the fair market value of a property. It's a vital tool, whether you're applying for a mortgage, considering listing your home for sale, or simply interested in discerning the market value of your property.

    Beyond these commonly recognized needs, there are numerous other situations where a residential appraisal can provide invaluable insight. These include:

    1. Estate Planning: Understanding the value of your property can help shape your financial and estate planning strategies, ensuring your loved ones are well provided for in the future.
    2. Financial Planning: An appraisal can aid in making informed decisions about refinancing, investment, or property improvement.
    3. Real Estate Owned (REO) or Short Sale Scenarios: Accurate property valuation is crucial when dealing with distressed properties to ensure you are making a sound financial decision.
    4. Bankruptcy or Divorce Proceedings: A precise, unbiased property valuation is vital in legal situations such as division of assets.
    5. PMI or Mortgage Insurance Removal: An updated appraisal can help you remove private mortgage insurance (PMI) once you've reached sufficient equity in your home.

    Appraisals play a significant role in the decision-making process of banks, lending institutions, and individual homeowners. They provide an objective perspective on a property's value, taking into account a multitude of unique features and market conditions.

    Our experienced residential appraisers delve into meticulous research, examining specific factors that might influence the value of your home. These include the presence of any recent renovations, needed repairs, upgrades, and both interior and exterior features of the property. An in-depth inspection of the property is also conducted to ensure an accurate and comprehensive valuation.
