Settling a divorce with less stress

A divorce is an especially daunting ordeal for the parties involved, and it is often further complicated by the troublesome decision of who keeps the house. Regardless of the circumstances, it's wise to get an appraisal from Helfrich Appraisal Services so both parties are entirely aware of the true market value of their house.

If the parties want to sell the home, they'll have a clearer picture of what price to set. And if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've received a fair evaluation.

Settling an estate with peace of mind

Losing a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often entails an appraisal to establish Market Value for the residential property involved. We ensure the highest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these affairs, unlike wealthy individuals. A home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, so knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've received a fair deal.

Let Helfrich Appraisal Services assist you in selling your home quickly at the right price

Whether you want to sell your home on your own or with the help of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal can help you make a better educated decision when determining your asking price. An appraiser has no vested interest in what price the house sells for, which is different than the interest of real estate agents. Our fees aren't contingent upon the value we report, but rather they are based on our efforts to complete the appraisal.

We analyze the difference in value items like an additional bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make on a daily basis. And we're experts in knowing how long homes are on the market. So, seeking a professional appraisal is a trusted way to decide what improvements will add value and what a suitable sales price is for your home so you don't come up short or have your house on the market for an extended amount of time.
