-Bill Altermatt, SRA
When it comes to hiring someone, their experience matters.
There’s just one thing you should keep in mind: not all “experience” is the same.
Hi, I’m Bill Altermatt - owner of Altermatt Appraisal Services and an SRA designated member of the Appraisal Institute.
Having worked in this business for 18 years, I can tell you that not all experience is created equal.
The education and training provided by the Appraisal Institute is the gold standard for the appraisal profession.
Of the nearly 2800 credentialed appraisers in the state of Ohio, less than 100 have earned the SRA designation.
So here is my promise to you:
I will answer all your questions and help guide you through the process.
In the end I will provide you with an appraisal report that you can rely on—and it will be delivered on time.
And one more thing… I won’t be farming out your appraisal to a less qualified person. I will handle your case personally.
The fastest way to get in touch is to fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
Keep in mind, my schedule fills up quickly—so don’t delay.

"I wanted to take a minute to thank you for taking care of my friend Jennifer E. in her trials with her Dad's house. I certainly know nothing of your market, but your report appears to be excellent work and I really appreciate you helping make Jennifer feel more comfortable about at least one aspect of this journey. Nothing I can do for her in Ohio, but I'm glad she found you and your company." -Elaine M.
"Thank you for your appraisal. I believe your assessment is accurate and will be the basis for the sales price of the home." -Pat H.

For over 18 years we having been performing residential appraisals in Lucas, Fulton & Wood County.
Residential properties include single family homes, 2-4 unit multi-family properties, condominiums, and vacant land.
✅ Pre-listing appraisals - The market is changing. Accurately pricing your property is critical to attracting the right buyers and making sure you are well positioned to sell your home for as much as possible... in the shortest amount of time.
✅ Estate appraisals - Whether you need a current or retrospective value (based upon the date of death), we are sensitive to your needs during these difficult times.
✅ Divorce appraisals - Having a professional report that is credible and easily defended can give you an unfair advantage.
✅ Tax Appeal appraisals - Is the county assessed value of your home out of touch with reality? Would a more accurate value lower your taxes and save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars? We are very familiar with these and can definitely help you with this process.
✅ Insurance appraisals - These can be complex and most clients require the cost approach if there has been a total loss. Fortunately, we have experience with these assignments.
✅ PMI Removal appraisals - Every lender is different. Please confirm (in writing) if your lender will accept a private appraisal for this Intended Use. Some do, some don't.
✅ Mortgage finance appraisals - We are on the preferred list for most banks and credit unions.
✅ Home measurement services - You'd be surprised at how inaccurate county records can be. Imagine if your home was a couple hundred square feet larger than what's on record with the county? Do you think that would impact the value? And don't expect a Realtor to measure your house. Most will base their decisions off county records (even when there are glaring differences). We see this on a weekly basis.
✅ Access to our private rolodex of VIPs - This is an exclusive benefit we provide to our clients. Would you like a personal introduction to an experienced and savvy Realtor who's a breeze to work with and consistently over-delivers? Do you need a reliable and experienced HVAC professional, someone you can count on for years to come? How about a rock star plumber who's a master at their craft? We know the very best people, and we will share our trusted partners with you.
