Our clients have used Principle Valuation for valuations for purchase and sale transactions, compensation relationships, and support for tax purposes. They do straightforward and intelligent work, and are very responsive.

We selected Principle because of their experience and reputation in the market. They are very knowledgeable about the industry, and particularly HUD financing. They were very thorough and hit their deadlines. Their appraisal went through HUD with no issues, which also made the borrower very happy.

They are very timely, reliable, have a solid understanding of the regulatory implications of their work, and are authoritative in the way they present their information.
