What is a bail bond appraisal?

Bail bonds can be used to temporarily release people from law enforcement custody, and they can be "purchased" with cash or other assets — like property. Before a home or property can be used collateral, the court must ensure that it's valued at more than the dollar cost of the bond. To begin this process, a real estate appraiser can find the estimated value of your home with a bail bond appraisal. This is known as a property bond.

When would I need a bail bond appraisal?

You need a bail bond appraisal if you want to use your property as bond. In a situation where a loved one is in jail and you can't pay cash for collateral, a property bond can be used to allow them out of police custody.

What happens in a bail bond appraisal?

Bail bond appraisals, like other appraisal types, consist of an inspection, followed by a written report from the appraiser explaining various parts that determine the value of your property. Every appraiser at Skylight Evaluations is licensed and regulated by the Appraisal Foundation, local to the area, ethical, highly experienced, and dedicated to using the latest technology — so when you order an appraisal, you can be confident that it's not just reliable, but also standardized and very accurate.

What do I do if I need a bail bond appraisal fast?

We understand that time is of the essence, and we want to help get your loved one out of custody quickly. We'd be happy to shift our calendars to make your bail bond appraisal our number one priority. Contact us now, and we will work with you to expedite your order. But your appraisal order needs to be both fast AND accurate. Since you can only use a home as collateral if it offsets the cost of the bail bond (typically, your property must be worth at least 50% to 100% more than the cost of the bond), your appraisal needs to be precise. While we ensure an expedited appraisal, we will not cut corners that result in an inaccurate estimate of your property.
