That's not the outcome we were hoping for which is to clear the records completely. It's a marginal improvement if any. You will have a hard time convincing buyers it wasn't a big deal and even if you do they will demand a steep discount anyway. I can offer you a 100% money-back guarantee on the appraisal so you can only gain by filing a DV claim.Eamonn wrote: ↑Tue Mar 16, 2021 6:51 pm Hi again Simon,
It's been a while! But I finally have an outcome with Carfax and Autocheck.
Both accidents still appear on the report however, autocheck shows no damage was reported in the collision. Carfax added that damage was under $1,000.
Wondering if it's still worth pursuing the insurance claim, or if there's not much dimished value considering these comments are now on the report?
