The company: Porch Light Appraisal, an appraisal company in southwest Washington, owned by Steven Philip Gray, has been in business since 2008 although Steven has been appraising since 2005. Porch Light Appraisal is based in Vancouver Washington / Clark County. Steven was previously a staff appraiser for World Savings Bank, where he cut his first teeth on the real estate appraisal business. Wachovia Bank, which purchased World Savings in 2007, later promoted Steven to Senior Staff Appraiser. After the banking crisis hit, most staff appraisers were laid off or went out on their own. Steven saw the economic change as a challenge and opportunity to launch his own firm, Next Appraisal, in California. After Steven moved to southwest Washington in late 2016, he changed the business name to Porch Light Appraisal.
Lenders, private mortgage brokers, homeowners, and attorneys make Porch Light Appraisal their first choice for real estate appraising in Clark County Washington. State Certified and FHA Approved for HUD insured mortgage appraisals, Porch Light Appraisal specializes in 1 to 4 unit properties and is often at work in Vancouver as well as adjacent cities of Camas and Ridgefield.
Make Porch Light Appraisal your next real estate appraisal source!
I am both Washington State Certified and FHA approved.
I have been trained and mentored by industry recognized trainers from World Savings & Wachovia. I was a staff appraiser for World Savings from 2005 to 2006, and for Wachovia from 2006 to 2008. I started Next Appraisal in late 2008 and transitioned to Porch Light Appraisal in late 2016.
Unlike many appraisers who market themselves to five, six, or sometimes seven different counties, I specialize in only one, Clark County Washington. This insures that I have the knowledge of the local markets which I serve and deliver accurate and reproducible results.
Porch Light Appraisal's investments in appraisal training and technology mean faster appraisal turn times for you & lower costs for everyone.
