ValueWatch from Mike Lefebvre, The Uncommon Agent

ValueWatch is the program I have developed for my preferred homeowner clients to help manage the equity of their largest investment: their home. Step 1 is a personal visit the property to perform a Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR). The is the federally mandated document for all real estate lending transactions and is a much deeper valuation analysis than a typical broker’s competitive market analysis (CMA). In my appraisal business I charge $300 for this report. For my ValueWatch clients it’s free.

Once the appraisal report is complete, and we have a baseline from which to start, we proceed to Step 2. At this point, I enter my clients’ relevant information into my system and three times a year we re-visit the file. My client will receive a notification from me that it has been 4 months since we last appraised their home and we need to schedule a time to go over how the current market may potentially be effecting their value. We take a look at any recent improvements they have done to the home and analyze current market data to adjust the previous report to bring the value current. This way we keep a constant eye on how the market is effecting the equity in their home.

ValueWatch is a free service I provide to my top-tier clients. Whether they are planning on selling in the near future, the long-term future or not at all, it’s a great way to keep a finger on the pulse of their equity position and just another “uncommon” way I conduct my business.

To get enrolled in the ValueWatch program please contact me via any of the methods listed at the right.
