Pre-Foreclosure & Short Sales in Temecula Valley

foreclosureStraw Hat Enterprises is a provider of real estate appraisals for REO foreclosures and short sales. I appraise real estate in the Southwest Riverside County, including Temecula and Murrieta area.

I provide appraisals with detailed opinions of market value for mortgage banks, and mortgage servicing clients as well as “quick sale” forecasts, that will provide insight into valuation differences depending upon your specific timeline.

My foreclosure and short sale appraisal services cater to the needs of homeowners in default, banks with real estate owned properties (REOs) in the Temencula Valley, mortgage lenders, HUD, FHA, VA, law firms, loan service companies and other financial institutions that make residential loans.

For Temecula real estate in foreclosure and bank owned real estate (REOs), owners and banks alike need to know the difference between “market” value and “quick disposition” value in order to determine the potential equity position or charge-off liability. Regardless of what condition the real property is in and the current residential market, a Temecula Valley appraisal will assist in estimating the ever changing market and how that impacts non- performing inventory of Temecula REO real estate.

Owners of real estate which are in foreclosure are faced with many challenges. Some owners are unwilling to allow an inspection of the property or if they’ve already abandoned the property, they may have neglected care of the home for a period of time, or even purposely caused damage. All of these factors become conditions that could impact the market value.

I have both the knowledge and experience to deal with the specific aspects of foreclosures and short sales, which is why you can rely on my reports to accurately reflect the current market conditions and values, in order for your firm to develop an appropriate understanding of the issues with the collateral and minimize your losses.
