Residential Appraisals

Pending a residential purchase or refinancing loan application, a lender is required by law to obtain an unbiased appraisal of the property. Homeowners might also retain an appraiser of their own when deciding whether to buy, sell, or finance their home.

When contracted, MRS sends out an appraiser to perform a thorough inspection of the subject property. The appraiser also researches municipal and other records for information on the property and the market area. Recent sales and listings of comparable properties in the area are taken into account as well. This extensive work is done so that independent and impartial conclusions regarding the property value can be reached.

After all the data collection and analysis, the appraiser forms their professional opinion on the value of the property. The final opinion is compiled into a report and presented to the client. At MRS Appraisals, we stake our reputation on every report, dedicated to providing fully accurate and impartial results.

Commercial Appraisals

Whether considering an investment into a commercial property or looking to avoid a tax hike, consulting a certified appraiser is often the first step. Since commercial property values are known to fluctuate, the appraisal must be not only accurate but swift.

An MRS representative performs all the necessary research and data collection before beginning the assessment process. Depending on the specifics of the task, they apply the required methodology. Whether using sales comparison, income capitalization, or the cost approach, the report will be compiled and tailored according to the needs of the client.

At MRS Appraisals, we know full well how complex commercial real estate valuations can be. That’s why we require clients to be forthcoming with information, and at the same time seek to provide a range of possible values in the final report.
