What is a bail bond appraisal?

If someone close to you needs a bail bond in order to be released from custody, your property can be put up for bond as an alternative to cash bonds. Before a home or property can be used collateral, the court must ensure that it's worth more than the dollar cost of the bond. A professional appraiser can perform a bail bond appraisal to assess the value of your property so that it can be used for bail bond. Using your home or property in place of money for a bail bond is called a property bond.

When would I want to get a bail bond appraisal?

An appraisal must be performed if you want to put your property up for a bond. If a loved one is in jail and you can't afford to 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 a property inspection, followed by a report written by the appraiser explaining various elements that play into determining the value of your property. Every appraiser at McMahon, Baldwin & Associates is licensed and regulated by the Appraisal Foundation, local to the Lombard area, ethical, experienced, and dedicated to using the latest technology — so when you request an appraisal, you can rest assured that it's not only quick, but also standardized and very accurate.

How soon can I get a bail bond appraisal?

You're crunched for time, and when it comes to getting your loved one out of custody quickly, we're here to help. We'd be happy to rearrange our schedules to make your bail bond appraisal our number one priority. We are willing to facilitate your request, so contact us now. But your appraisal needs to be both quick AND accurate. Using your home as collateral relies on the value of the property — normally, it must be valued between 150% to 200% the cost of the bail bond. While we guarantee an expedited appraisal, we will not cut corners that result in an inaccurate estimate that doesn't reflect the value of your property.
