A Little Humor - 03/10/10 04:37 AM
As an element in preparing appraisal reports I cite recent sales of properties similar to the subject of my appraisal. In doing so I include photographs and descriptions of those comparable sales. The other day I am standing outside of a WAWA Store where I stopped to get a drink and was calling my office. As people streamed out of WAWA at noon and walked passed me I told Eileen back at the office that "I made a mistake and shot the neighbor and would have to go back". Needless to said the stream of blank unconcerned faces passing by me at that (8 comments)

These middlemen sliced the appraiser's fees and imposed Draconian completion deadlines on appraisers forcing many out of the business and causing others to cut corners, or in some cases engage in scams. The proliferation of the use of unlicensed property inspectors has exploded since then and so has the numbers of disgruntled agents and homeowners seeking fair and accurate appraisals. Many agents have lost income (3 comments)

Limited Exposure Time and Value I was recently asked by an intern how to determine value when the client has specified the requirement for a 90 day market exposure limitation. That value may under some circumstances be defined as follows: Liquidation Value: the most probable price that a specified interest in real property is likely to bring under all of the following conditions: 1.

The actual market conditions currently prevailing are those to which the appraised property interest is subject. 3. The buyer (0 comments)
