Pre-Foreclosure, Short Sales & REO


REO appraiserEmpire Appraisal Group, Inc. is a leading provider of real estate appraisals for pre-foreclosures, short sales and REO’s. Our company appraises real estate throughout South Florida (Broward and Palm Beach), providing high-quality appraisals with detailed opinions of fair market value for mortgage banks and mortgage servicing clients as well as “quick sale” forecast that consider your specific timeline.

Our appraisal services cater to the needs of homeowners in default, banks with real estate owned properties (REOs), mortgage lenders, HUD, FHA, law firms, loan service companies, and other financial institutions that hold real estate loans.  For real estate in foreclosure and bank owned real estate (REOs), owners and banks alike need to know the difference between “fair market” value and “quick disposition” value to determine the potential equity position or charge-off liability.  The fair market value in an ever-changing market is crucial to reducing non-performing REO inventory.

Owners of real estate that are in foreclosure are faced with many lending challenges and may even be unwilling to allow an inspection of the property.  This is common for abandoned, neglected, or even intentionally damaged properties.  Empire Appraisal Group has both the knowledge and experience to deal with any and all specific aspects of pre-foreclosures, short sales and REO’s, which is why you can rely on our reports to minimize your losses.
