Residential real estate appraisals

Serving the Hudson Valley for over 45 years

About Us

Riess Appraisals, Inc. was established in 1973 by Frank G. Riess, SRA. The company has since grown into the leading provider of quality residential appraisals in the Mid-Hudson Valley. The staff of seven full-time New York State Licensed and Certified appraisers is experienced in appraising all types of residential properties. The majority of the staff is Certified to produce appraisals for the Federal Housing Authority, (FHA).

Our in-house underwriting staff reviews each file individually and coordinates its delivery to the client. We provide EDI service, faxed advance copies and priority mailing of the reports dependent upon which best serves our client. The combined exceptional experience of the appraisal staff, our diligent review process and the use of the most current technology available ensures that Riess Appraisals Inc. will continue to produce the best quality appraisals available.


We have inspected and appraised over 100,000 properties throughout the Hudson Valley. While many would be considered "cookie cutter," most have at least one uncommon trait that influences value. We have a keen eye for this and specialize in appraising unique properties with unusual features. We've seen it all from very large homes on very small lots to very small homes on very large lots. River views, commercial influence and infestations are the good, the bad and the ugly that our team encounters on a daily basis.

In addition to valuations, we provide real estate consulting. Living on the cutting edge of market trends, assignments that hinge on hypothetical conditions and extraordinary assumptions are possible.
