What are Bankruptcy Appraisals?

When filing for bankruptcy, you must supply the court with a summary of your current financial situation. This summary will include information about your current income, your current debts, and the value of any assets you own.

If you own a home, it’s likely your largest asset.  Therefore it’s especially important to accurately determine its current value. A bankruptcy appraisal will do just that.

Your bankruptcy judge will pay close attention to the appraised value of your home when reviewing your bankruptcy application. The accuracy of the appraisal and reputability of the appraiser will, therefore, affect the outcome of your bankruptcy proceedings.
