Thorough Appraisals

You might need some real estate appraised for many reasons, and when you do, you want to trust George K. H. Lau & Associates, Inc.. When we set up an appointment with you to assess your property's value, we take the job very seriously.

Our appraisal system is very thorough. First, we'll sit with you and discuss the nature of the appraisal, and we'll ask you pertinent questions about real estate. From there, we'll complete an exterior and interior inspection of the property to achieve an accurate valuation.

Methodical and Efficient

Our property appraisers value our clients' time, but that doesn’t mean we rush through our work. Instead, we aim to perform the sort of appraisal you demand while promising to do so in a respectable timeframe. We take a thorough approach from start to finish, ensuring no stone goes unturned.

Our Three-Pronged Real Estate Appraisal Approach

There is a lot to consider when appraising a property. Additionally, there are many reasons to appraise a property. Whether selling, remodeling, building, refinancing, applying for loans, etc., we are here to provide a thorough appraisal service.

The first approach we'll take in appraising your property is called the sales comparison approach. This is where we compare your property to others in the area and analyze what they are worth/what they sold for in recent years. Many factors, such as remodels, home additions, and more, are at play in this approach.

If we need to go more in-depth than the simple comparative approach, we will break out the cost and income approach. The income approach is usually used for appraising commercial properties. It measures the value of a property based on the amount of income the property has historically generated.

The cost approach is generally used in conjunction with the comparative approach. This method looks at the amount of money put into the property to improve it. When you look at this amount and minus the depreciation value, you get the property's value. This ensures a client looking to purchase will never pay more for a property than it would cost to rebuild from scratch.

When You Should Call an Appraisal Service

You might want to appraise a property for numerous reasons. For example, let's say there's a piece of land you're considering buying. The land, and the building that sits on the land, might be long overdue for a new valuation. Floods, structural issues, and more can contribute to a building's depreciation. Conducting an appraisal today might tell a completely different story than an appraisal performed a decade ago.

Sometimes, sellers might simply want to know their home's market value. Have they overshot the mark with their high asking price, or are they asking too little for a home that has become extremely valuable in recent years? Professional appraisal services can answer these questions for you, and they can tell you a lot more about the property.

Celebrated Appraisers at Your Service

Despite the importance of appraisals to real estate transactions, not all real estate appraisal firms offer the same caliber of service. If you want an appraisal accompanied by an in-depth report, walk-throughs of the property, and more, you need to contact the trusted professionals on our team. Over the years, we've become some of the most sought-after appraisers in the region. We've ascended the ranks by performing honest and accurate appraisals. Doing more than just examining properties, we look at similar properties in the region, the fluctuations in market trends over the years, and more.

You'll have a chance to see how we generated our valuations during the final stages of our work. We compile our findings in reports that you can hold on to for future reference or share with relevant clients and governing bodies. We're confident that anyone who inspects our efforts will be more than satisfied with our findings. We leave no stone unturned, ensuring the most informed and accurate appraisals possible.

Real Estate Appraisal Process

We have a detailed and precise real estate appraisal process that every one of our appraisers is bound to abide by to ensure it is done with the highest level of precision and integrity. It includes thorough research and analysis of every piece of data and information required to determine an accurate appraisal.

The following is a breakdown of our appraisal process.

Interior Inspection

A list of all assets and defects is objectively analyzed and compiled in a comprehensive written report. This includes a thorough analysis of each room on the property to examine the material, condition of fixtures, walls, floors, and overall quality. In addition, they will take notes about the plumbing and appliances and anything else that will be left behind when the seller vacates the property.

Property Condition

Like the interior inspection, this includes the specifics of the property, including the construction, layout of the real estate, number of rooms, and specific features, equipment, improvements, and renovations.

The current property condition is critical to the home's value. Simple things like the quality of the frame and drywall or the state of the plumbing or appliances will contribute to a property's value over time. Considering these details is what makes us Honolulu's finest commercial property and house appraisers.

Neighborhood and surrounding areas

An assessment is made on a property's proximity to services, facilities, and amenities as they may (or may not) relate and affect its market value. We also look at similar sales in the surrounding area to find the value based on various factors of the home, such as square footage and land size.

Property Classification

Our appraiser will look at comparable sales in the area to determine the typical value of your real estate. This includes the use of public records and all other relevant sources, including zoning records, historical and current tax statistics, professional associations, and other applicable publications.

Calculating the Market Value

Sales Comparison

This step requires gathering data on the average sales price of the surrounding property, which gets factored into the appraisal process for your property.

Cost Approach

In this step, market trends are considered and analyzed to determine the overall land value.

Income Profit

In the final step of our appraisal process, the sales data is analyzed to measure potential profit and loss.

As is displayed, we provide you with a thorough and detailed report that analyzes every relevant aspect that goes into the value of real estate property. For more information, contact us today!
