NY Property Detectives

In addition to our other detailed services, we offer several other Alternative Real Estate Services

Broker Price Opinion’s
We offer statewide residential and commercial real estate valuations for the mortgage-lending marketplace. As an alternative to conventional appraisal products, broker price opinions fulfill customers’ needs by providing a professional opinion of value, delivered in a timely and cost efficient manner.

Only the most skilled real estate brokers and agents are employed for valuation purposes because of the depth of their knowledge and expertise of local markets. The brokers and agents within the Real Estate NYPD network cover the entire State of New York and are continually monitored and rated based on performance.

The BPO report includes extensive comments related to local market conditions, immediate neighborhood characteristics, subject property condition, as well as an analysis of three current listings and three recent sales of comparable properties (including photos, as specified by the customer).

Detailed analysis of all of the data listed above results in the broker’s conclusion of a suggested list and sale price.

We realize that we are only as good as our last order. We invite you to test our service and provide us with the opportunity to earn your business.

Property Inspections
The primary goal of our inspection services is to provide timely and accurate information regarding occupancy status, first time vacancy, and property condition. Inspections are completed in compliance with Investor/Insurer guidelines when needed. We provide the client with direct and immediate information and works diligently with the inspectors to ensure the highest timely completion percentage in the industry. Not only do we perform exterior, visual inspections, but we also ensure property preservation and preventative action by completing interior inspections. The combination of both services allows us to effectively and accurately evaluate property condition and need, inside and out.

Initial Property Inspection
A visual, exterior inspection for occupancy verification per Client instruction and/or Investor/Insurer guidelines, with a property description and no interior access.

We will provide information based on a visual “walk-through” inspection only and will not include any comprehensive testing or certification of the property condition. The main emphasis and purpose of the interior inspection is to alert the client to any visible damages or situations that, if not addressed immediately, could lead to damages or the issuance of a citation by the city.

Contact inspections are generally ordered by mortgage servicers and lenders when contact must be attempted with the borrower. One attempt is made to contact the mortgagor during a visual exterior inspection for occupancy verification per Client instruction and/or Investor/Insurer guidelines with a property description and no interior access. A message will be provided to the mortgagor to contact the Client’s facility at a specified phone number and extension.

Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure Inspection
Upon request, we will meet with the mortgagor to review the terms and conditions of the deed in lieu title transfer. On the transfer date, we will again send an inspector to meet the mortgagor at the property to verify the property condition, including whether appliances remain at the property, utilities have been maintained, all debris removed, etc. and the notation of any property damages. While at the property, the inspector can immediately secure/winterize the property and provide photo documentation to support the condition of the property. Any items needed to place the property in convey/marketable condition will be reported and a bid submitted to the Client.
