What are bail bond appraisals?
If a family member or someone close to you needs a bail bond in order to be released from custody, your property can be put up for bond as a substitute for a cash bond. But first, the home's value must be established so the court can ensure that it covers the cost of the bond. A licensed appraiser can perform a bail bond appraisal to analyze the value of your property so that it can be used as a bail bond. Using your home or property in place of cash for a bail bond is known as a property bond.
When would I want to get a bail bond appraisal?
You need a bail bond appraisal if you use your property as a bail bond. In a situation where a loved one is in jail and you can't pay cash for the bond, a property bond can be used to allow them out of law enforcement custody.
How do bail bond appraisals work?
A bail bond appraisal is similar to other appraisals — an appraiser inspects a property, then writes a report that describes how they estimated the value. You can put trust in the estimates performed by Melville Appraisal thanks to our experience, knowledge of the Santa Cruz County area, and conformity to the Appraisal Foundation standards and regulations.
How fast do I get a bail bond appraisal?
We understand that speed is imperative, and we want to get your loved one out of custody fast. When you request an appraisal through Melville Appraisal, we want you to rest assured that your order is our highest priority. We are willing to facilitate your request, so contact us now. But your appraisal needs to be both quick AND accurate. Since you can only use your home as collateral if it covers the cost of the bail bond (normally, your property needs to be worth at least 50% to 100% more than the cost of the bond), your appraisal needs to be precise. So while we ensure a fast appraisal, we won't cut corners that result in an inaccurate estimate that doesn't reflect the value of your property.
