What are appraisals for bail bonds for?
Bail bonds can be used to temporarily release people from law enforcement custody, and they can be "bought" with cash or other assets — like property. Before a home or property can be used for bail bond, the court must ensure that it's worth more than the dollar cost of the bond. To begin this process, a professional appraiser must assess the estimated value of your home using a bail bond appraisal. This is known as a property bond.
When would I require a bail bond appraisal?
An appraisal must be performed if you want to put your property up as a bond. This is a good alternative if someone close to you is incarcerated and you are unable to put down cash or other assets as collateral to discharge them.
What happens in a bail bond appraisal?
Bail bond appraisals, like other appraisal types, consist of a property inspection, followed by a report written by the appraiser explaining various factors that play into determining the value of a property. You can put trust in the estimates performed by Edwards Appraisal Group, Inc. thanks to our experience, knowledge of the Spokane area, and compliance with the Appraisal Foundation standards and regulations.
What do I do if I need a bail bond appraisal fast?
You're crunched for time, and when it comes to getting your loved one out of custody quickly, we're ready to assist. We'd be happy to shift our schedules to make your appraisal order our number one priority. Contact us now, and we will work to facilitate your appraisal. But your appraisal order needs to be both quick AND accurate. Since you can only use your property as collateral if it covers the cost of the bail bond (normally, your property needs to be valued at over 50% to 100% more than the cost of the bond), your appraisal needs to be precise. While we ensure a fast appraisal, we will not cut corners that result in an inaccurate estimate of your property.
