Review by in Dale City, VA
She was prompt at to the house but it's been over 2 weeks and we've not gotten the report yet
Response by Canteja Appraisal Services: First off, it has been 10 days since I received the contact information. Not OVER 2 WEEKS. This can be verified thru HomeAdvisor. It is not 1 appraisal it is 2 on the same house. One based on current condition and one for proposed improvements value. So twice the work, twice the research, etc. I have been working on both of them. The appraisal based on current condition is a challenge due to houses lack of improvements and upkeep. I have been researching other similar house sales in this market area to obtain accurate and verifiable statistical data to support adjustments needed to accurately adjust for current inferior condition. There simply are no sales in previous year in this market area in this condition, they are all in superior condition. This is time consuming in order to provide an accurate value. That is what I do, provide ACCURATE values. They are not always quick values depending on each individual situation. But they are always ACCURATE and SUPPORTED. I think my other review support this.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
