There is NO Substitute for a Physical Inspection
Insurance companies and underwriters are getting more selective in the values they will accept. Desktop appraisal methods and multiple years of value trending depend solely on the accuracy and completeness of the data provided at the time a structure is added to the statement of values. These methods can potentially result in inconsistent values and the exclusion of structures that exist but are not listed on the current statement of values.
Certified Appraisal Reports
AssetWorks provides all certified building appraisal reports in both hard copy and electronic formats. Our appraisal reports include:
- Certification Letter
- Insurance Summary Report
- Insurance Detail Report – includes a digital photo and detail information on a per building basis.
- Value Comparison Report – illustrates the variance in the value established as a result of the appraisal versus the replacement cost value on the current statement of values prior to AssetWorks conducting the appraisal.
- Electronic Data File – provided in Microsoft Excel format that includes all building features, COPE data, and values that are displayed on our building detail report. The data is provided in a format that can be sorted and edited to populate our client’s current statement of values.
Underwriting/C.O.P.E. Data Collection
