Expert Witness Testimony
We offer a full range of Real Estate Appraisal services, with experience in many types of property. We are also experienced in litigation support and expert witness services. Clients who have used our expert testimony services include government agencies, tax entities, financial institutions, legal and accounting firms and many other businesses. In many cases, our independent, supportable analysis has allowed clients to settle cases without going to court.
An appraiser must remain unbiased in performing an appraisal of a property. But we can consult with you and advise you about the relative strength of an appraisal presented by opposing parties. We can also perform additional research and analysis to support or discredit assumptions or conclusions.
Some examples of issues we have experience with include:
- Valuation of "stigmatized" property
- Valuation as of a date in the past
- Valuation for condemnation and eminent domain cases
- Effect on value of properties with history of flood
- Estate settlement
- Effect on value caused by insect infestation
- Valuation for divorce, partnership, taxation issues etc.
