Who Needs Real Estate Appraisal?
The role of the real estate appraiser is to determine, report upon, and attest to the real value of property. Their valuation is the foundation upon which informed decisions about real estate are made – whether by a family purchasing its first home, a farmer selling an acreage or larger parcel, a retailer deciding where to locate its next outlet, a developer considering an empty lot, or a lawyer defending or prosecuting a case.
Landucation Appraisals has provided a broad range of services to a client base that includes everyone from the typical homeowner, a diverse range of real estate sellers, home and commercial real estate buyers and an extensive list of professionals including attorneys, accountants, major financial institutions, government agencies and municipalities.
If you are buying or selling real property, settling and estate, dividing matrimonial property, or just refinancing an independent and professional valuation of your assets is important.
