Appraisal Capabilities in the Inland Empire


Our Firm has the skill level and  field experience  to complete appraisals in older, stable resale neighborhoods as well as appraisals on properties under construction in  new  residential and condominium  projects.  


  • Are you tired of having last minute underwriter “subject to”  appraisal conditions  before  that purchase loan for  your  client’s new home can close? 


  • Do your appraisers understand FNMA  and Lender Guidelines for new home  construction appraisals?


  • Look no further than Pettifer & Associates, Inc.  for answers.


  • We understand the importance of doing it right the first time.   


  • We recognize and include essential information  often  omitted in new tract appraisals that are often  the reason for unnecessary conditions or rejection.


  • Does your appraiser have the ability to apply and support  new phase price increases or declines?


  • Does your appraiser support  the appraised value opinion with outside competitive tract sales?


  • Does your appraiser have the ability to support  a lot or view premium from  the market?  Different  Floor Plan pricing?


  • Does your appraiser  properly consider concessions or lack of builder concessions  on a new home?


  • Do you constantly have conditions on  the cost of  builder home upgrades and  options?  Has the appraiser properly supported the sale price on a new home that has atypical high builder installed upgrades?


  • Does your appraiser have the ability to appraise a Model Homes in a new development?  Know the correct  way to handle a furnished model home?    Personal Property included in the sale price?


We have appraised thousands of new  homes  in developments  from Corona to Temecula,  north into Indio  and  Palm Springs,  Yucaipa,  Redlands, Fontana and  west to Chino.  We have experience in almost all  types  of  new  home categories from simple tract homes and condominium projects with hundreds of  units to small luxury  “build to suit” custom home  projects.
