What is a bail bond appraisal?

If someone close to you needs a bail bond in order to be discharged from custody, your property can be put up for bond as an alternative to cash bonds. Before a home or property can be used for bail bond, the court has to make sure that it's valued at more than the amount of the bond. A licensed appraiser can perform a bail bond appraisal to estimate the value of your home so that it can be used for bail bond. Using your home or property as a bail bond is known as a property bond.

When are bail bond appraisals necessary?

A bail bond appraisal must be performed if you want to put your home up as a bond. This is a good option if a loved one is jailed and you're not able to put down cash or other assets as collateral to release them from custody.

How do bail bond appraisals work?

Bail bond appraisals, like other appraisal types, consist of a property inspection, followed by a written report from the appraiser explaining various elements that determine the value of a property. Every appraiser at The Appraisal Firm is licensed and regulated by the Appraisal Foundation, local to the San Diego County area, ethical, experienced, and dedicated to using the latest technology — so when you order an appraisal from us, you can be confident that it's not just fast, but also standardized and highly accurate.

What do I do if I need a bail bond appraisal now?

We understand that speed is necessary, and we want to get someone you love out of custody quickly. We're happy to shift our calendars to make your appraisal order our top priority. Contact us now, and we will work with you to facilitate the request. But your appraisal needs to be both quick AND accurate. The ability to use your property as collateral relies on the value of the property — usually, it must be valued at 150% to 200% the cost of the bail bond. So while we promise a fast appraisal, we refuse to cut corners that result in an inaccurate estimate of your property.
