Dear Hardworking Investor:


Luxury to Budget
All Researched by the Certifax Staff

You hear it everywhere … the market’s bottomed, and now you want to jump in before all the good deals are gone.
Myrtle Beach is an ideal holiday home destination, but you don’t live here, so how do you know where to begin?
If you could find someone to help you who …

  • knows the market inside and out
  • has a track record of helping people earn loads of money in real estate
  • commercial appraisers turn to for her residential expertise

… what would her guidance be worth to you?
I am that person.
After more than 35,000 appraisals for over 3,400 clients, I’ve saved countless people from overpaying on real estate and helped others get rich on real estate.
I want to help you, too.
This is why I created The Certifax Report, a complete ‘done-for-you’ resource that is proven to give you guaranteed money-saving deals with no hype and no hidden agendas from someone with no commissions at stake.


“Had it not been for Kay, I would have undoubtedly left bag after bag of money on the table either as a buyer or seller.”

Attorney Scott Umstead

For any of you who wonder if The Certifax Report is all it’s cracked up to be, I can only tell you that it most certainly is. While the Report itself is new, its founder, Kay Van Hoesen, is highly experienced and her “word” on values is purely unexcelled. For years now, I have refused to make a single move in real estate without her expert consultation. Had it not been for Kay, I would have undoubtedly left bag after bag of money on the table either as a buyer or seller. She has shown me the most profitable niches of any current market and, further, has directed me to specific deals and the finer points of valuation. I could have easily paid for a lifetime subscription to the Certifax Report with only a fraction of what she has saved me on any one deal. She’s the best; get in on it.

Kay Van Hoesen Founder of Certifax, Inc., Sharing her Proven Analysis so You can Save Time, Worry and Money

Now you can enjoy similar results with your real estate investments while saving yourself a ton of time that can be better spent with your family and on enjoyable hobbies like golfing, fishing or boating.
I can’t say whether you’ll always get a 50-to-1 return on investment, but I can guarantee you’ll be satisfied with the service, or you’ll pay nothing.
I’ll explain more about this extraordinary guarantee in a moment.
But before we discuss that, let me share with you how this all came about.
For years my staff and I quietly did appraisals for mortgage lenders. Often the sales were overpriced, and when we “didn’t make value” we sometimes got black-balled by agents and lenders.
Despite all the changes in the market, many properties are still overpriced today, and we’re still unpopular with some people because of our honest assessments.
Recently we saved a couple from Washington, D.C. from overpaying on a condo by US$70,000. We pissed off a Realtor, a developer and a lender, but we saved Bob and Mary US$70,000.
After seeing way too many buyers come here and pay way too much money — through no fault of their own except lack of knowledge — I knew there had to be a better way.

“They can simplify your life and
save you from making some serious mistakes.”

Dave Brunko

If you’re wondering whether Kay Van Hoesen and Certifax are credible, I can tell you unequivocally, they are. I have consulted with Kay for appraisals since the 1980s and done business with Certifax since its inception. You’ll find them fair, honest, intelligent and informed. They can simplify your life and save you from making some serious mistakes. Whenever I have a chance to recommend them, I do.

You deserve to have this information and the opportunity to capitalize on my research.
We tell it like it is.
Finally, facts you can count on with no hype, no fluff, and no baloney.
From this point forward you can put away the charts and spread sheets because we do all that for you.

Do you have the time or resources to analyze 13,000 listings? We do. After 35,000 appraisals, no one knows this market better nor can anyone come close to our skill in analyzing data.
What would it be like if your search for real estate started off with a narrowed-down list of exemplary opportunities?
How much time, anxiety and frustration could you save if you knew that every possibility is a golden opportunity?
The biggest problem is choosing only one because they’re all so good.
Of course the financial savings are great, but there’s a much bigger benefit: The freedom that comes with more spare time for family, friends and hobbies, less stress, and peace of mind.

The Certifax Report is Unlike Anything Else for Real Estate Investors


More than Just Algorithms
Real Analysis and Real Deals

You’ve probably seen or heard about national companies offering foreclosure information. Maybe you even tried a few of them but didn’t find any deals. That’s because they don’t give you deals. They only give you public records — and algorithms — with absolutely no research.
Just because something is a foreclosure doesn’t mean it’s underpriced. You still have to know the market, the neighborhoods, the recent sales and competing active inventory.
Difference #1: We look at all of it. We analyze recent sales as well as active competing inventory. If it’s not priced under recent sales and under current actives, it doesn’t get included.
Difference #2: We know the neighborhoods and the nuances, and we’ll tell you if there’s anything odd like groundwater contamination or a gravel mine nearby or rundown properties in close vicinity.
Difference #3: They overwhelm you with pre-foreclosures, delinquencies and possible auction properties that may never be available for purchase. We only give property that is available for purchase and can be closed in a matter of weeks.
Difference #4: We give you more than just bank-owned property. If it’s an underpriced FSBO or simply a well-priced conventional listing that’s under market, we include it.

To Master Real Estate Investing You Only Need the Right Tools
And the Most Precious Commodity in the World … Knowledge


“Kay is a master appraiser … If you really want to know the market and value, you won’t find a better appraiser than Kay Van Hoesen.”

Tracey Magdeburg

For six years I trained to become an appraiser at Certifax Appraisals before striking out on my own in 2007. I now have a flourishing appraisal business in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, and I get countless accolades from my customers and clients about my reports and my ability to analyze complex properties. I can honestly say, had it not been for the tutelage I received under Kay Van Hoesen, my skills as an appraiser would be no where near this level. Kay is a master appraiser. Not only are her ethics, standards and knowledge beyond reproach, but also she has an innate ability to decipher market data and boil it down so anyone can understand it. If you really want to know the market and value, you won’t find a better appraiser than Kay Van Hoesen.

The Surprising Low Cost
of this
All-In-One Research, Analysis and Deal Finder


To Profit from the Market, You have to Analyze Recent Sales, Current Listings, and Know Neighborhood Pros and Cons

If you were to hire a knowledgeable, experienced appraiser, someone who’s been in the trenches and knows first-hand the pros and cons of different neighborhoods, to analyze and estimate value, even if it’s just a “desk-top” review, you’d be looking at a likely charge of us$225 per assignment, or us$6,000 to us$9,000 for 30 to 40 reports every month.
Now consider that we’re not only researching and alerting you to 30 to 40 opportunities a month, but we’re also analyzing at least that many or more that don’t make our strict criteria of earning you instant equity.

Imagine what you’d pay to hire that much research.


True, we are not giving you appraisals and we’re not acting as appraisers, but we are calling on our vast experience and knowledge from 26 years and more than 35,000 appraisals in the Myrtle Beach market to identify and alert Certifax Report members to some of the best offerings at any given moment. The opportunities change constantly, and if you’re not on top of them, you’ll miss out.
