Professional Appraisals

Oral Report: Oral reports are provided to MaRous clients to inform clients of certain conditions in advance of any written/documented appraisals.

Restricted Appraisal Report: A restricted-use appraisal report is the only report that can be used when the intended user is strictly the client–not a bank, insurance company, probate court, etc. The restricted-use appraisal report has limited reporting requirements such that the report may not be understood properly without additional information in the appraiser’s work file.

Appraisal Report: A standard appraisal report gives an opinion of value along with detailed supporting information about the property and value opinion.
