Until recently many states did not require individuals to meet specific qualifications before being allowed to perform appraisals. The Appraisal Institute came about as a result of the need to have professional unbiased estimates prepared by knowledgeable and trustworthy practitioners. Today every state maintains an appraiser regulatory law.

Nevertheless professionalism is not established by memberships, designations, and licenses alone. While a certificate of completion from a one-week course can be a good foundation, it does not always ensure ethical practice on the job. Experience always exceeds education alone.

Beyond the academic training, a professional appraiser also must possess strong communications, investigative, and analytical skills. What good is it if an appraiser has knowledge without the ability to communicate his observations and findings? Orderly, logical, and a grammatically correct manner of communication is equally if not more important.

A professional appraiser is someone who thinks and speaks clearly, possesses sound judgment, and writes client reports in a concise persuasive manner. Ambiguity and inconsistency are unacceptable.

Good appraisers are like detectives always seeking essential information from diverse individuals and sometimes reluctant sources. They are naturally inquisitive, ask hard questions, and enjoy hunting for information. An outstanding appraiser’s objectivity and sensitivity to new trends causes them to be connected and tuned into the heartbeat of the marketplace.

Because market value is often shaped by the needs, desires, and motivations of the marketplace, an appraiser must objectively estimate value beyond their own personal preferences and judgments. Hence a good appraiser must be emotionally detached, reasonable, and truthful.

An experienced appraiser is head and shoulders above the rest, particularly one who has lived and worked in the area his entire life. Only by reason of use, interaction, and ongoing engagement can one adequately assess the current market and predict future changes. This is why it is often best to employ a real estate appraiser who has lived and worked in your area their entire life.

Before choosing an appraiser to work for you, seek out someone who is not only licensed and certified, look also for prerequisite skills and experience. Better yet, if you can find a native born and bred local, someone who really and truly knows your territory and market, he can strategically prep and position you to be one step ahead of the pack.

Orlando Police Department – No Pursuit Policy in Law Enforcement

Last night while walking to the pharmacy and Blockbuster a white expedition driving out of control nearly ran us and an Orlando police officer over.  After filling out a report on the incident, I learned from the local police officers that the fleeing owner of the vehicle had just buglarized and robbed someone in my neighborhood. Yet the police had been ordered by Lt. Peterson to not pursue.

I later learned about the “no pursuit policy” which over the last 2 years has led to a remarkable increase in crime across Orlando as criminals can drive away from the scene of a crime knowing full well that OPD has a “no pursuit policy”.  To make matters worse local news channels report such policies and alert criminals to their ability to flee and escape without repercussions.

The policy was originally created in the interest of other innocent pedestrians and drivers on the road to prevent them from dying or being hurt during police chases. Yet there surely must be some middle ground whereby law enforcement can pursue criminals but not endanger the general public. To withdraw from pursuing a criminal is equally jeopardizing to the safety of the general public and society.

If criminals are not punished they will keep committing crime.

Senator John McCain Courts NRA – National Rifle Association, Good or Bad for America?

I noticed Senator John McCain recently spoke to the NRA (National Rifle Association) expressing his support of the 2nd Amendment’s rights to bear arms.

Good or bad for America? Certainly we as a country have seen more killings and incarcerations than any nation on earth. Something NOT to be proud about.

Yet taking away good peoples guns maybe isn’t the answer either. If only the bad guys have guns and some local cops call in sick and the police force is understaffed, where does that leave we the people? If you’re living out in the country and need to protect yourself against wild animals, shouldn’t you be allowed to have a gun?

On the other hand it’s organizations like the NRA that enable guns to be sold and freely in circulation for purchase in the first place.  If guns weren’t able to be so easily bought, high school murders and college rage shootings wouldn’t be happening. Moreover the bad guys wouldn’t be able to get their hands on “a piece” as easily.

I’m very undecided on the matter frankly, but I do realize and know something has got to be done and quick.

Your thoughts on the matter?

Central Florida Property Appraising & Consulting – Real Estate Appraisals in Central Florida

Appraisers ensure that the decisions made by buyers, sellers, government officials, insurers, investors, and others are based on well-informed, carefully reasoned judgment. Therefore appraisers help promote the stable and orderly development of the real estate market.

Appraisers of real property evaluate the utility and desirability of property and estimate its value for various purposes such as purchase and sale, financing, taxation, investment, and insurance. Appraisers consider the utility and value of properties.

An appraisal is nothing more than one person’s opinion based on research in the appropriate given market. That being said, it behooves the consumer to choose an appraiser who is knowledgeable and not merely a newly licensed practitioner. As for myself I was first a home builder for over twenty years, entered real estate brokering, than real estate appraising. This professional progression has been most useful and served me well.

The astute appraiser assembles pertinent and relevant data to which he applies the appropriate analytical techniques to accurately assess value. When these activities are combined with knowledge, experience, and sound professional judgment, the result is vital information and invaluable counsel.

Substantiated by relevant data and sound reasoning, the professional appraiser’s opinion carries considerable weight. The purpose of all appraisals is to estimate the defined value, which may be defined as the monetary worth of property, goods, or services.

Many people are involved in a flurry of real estate activities–buyers, sellers, tax assessors, investors, and insurers–and each has his or her own concerns about real property. That being said there are several different ways to consider the monetary worth of real estate.

When estimating value through the appraisal, the process entails assessing several components — market value, insurable value, investment value, or some other properly defined value of an identifiable interest or interests in a specific parcel of real estate.

Real estate presents both various opportunities and potential problems all of which must be accounted for and fully considered. Before hastily embarking upon anything within the real estate market, it is most advantageous to consider land utilization studies, supply and demand, economic feasibility, highest and best use analysis, marketability, and any proposals for existing development.

The many facets of real property and diverse interests all merge to make for a very delightful and sometimes complicated mix, which makes the appraiser and savvy real estate consultant a most valuable professional with whom to partner.
