TECHNOLOGY! We are invested in technology to do the job quickly, reliably.
INTEGRITY! We avoided "sub-prime" lenders like the plague. We learned early on that the sub prime market was doing business the wrong way for all the wrong reasons- we knew years before the crash that it was creating an epic mess. We work only for lenders & clients who respect the process of independent valuations which are the backbone of secure, traditional mortgage lending.

How to Get a Better Appraisal
Here's an article that suggests 8 ways to get a better appraisal. While some of the examples are from markets very different from ours, most of the ideas can work here. Click here for a brief, useful read.
COST VS VALUE
Wondering about value added by a new kitchen, bathroom, or other project???
This annual report by Remodeling Magazine & the National Association of Realtors shows the gain in market value vs. the cost of various improvement projects, now updated for 2014!!! See how much value is added by common upgrades, remodeling, additions, etc. in our region. Some real changes, mostly positive, this year. Midrange projects are better this year than last. Check out the added value for an emergency generator system or a new deck! The added value for upscale projects are still pretty weak, however. Remember, these are just estimates and are based on the closest market (Buffalo) in which they report. Check it out here.
Mortgage Rates, Still Near Historic Lows!
