“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”

Selling your HOME?
Keeping Your Home When Filing for Bankruptcy

A Home Appraisal Can Help You Sell Your Home Quickly and for Top-Dollar


Although there are plenty of good real estate agents out there, because they have a potential 5-figure commission check on the line it's hard to believe that their pricing advice can be truly objective.

  • Real estate agents who want an easy, quick sale may tell you that your home is worth less than it really is.

  • Agents who are desperate to get your business may tell you that your home is worth far more than you could ever possibly get for it, just to get you to sign a listing agreement with them.

Bankruptcy is your last line of defense against unscrupulous creditors and debt collectors. If you're planning on filing for bankruptcy and you want to keep your home, you must provide proof of the value of your home.


  • The Court will want to see proof of the value of your home to be sure that the equity in your home isn't above a certain level.

  • The proof you need to show to the Bankruptcy Court is an official appraisal report, prepared by a New York State Certified Real Estate Appraiser.
