     Appraisal Philosophy:  We recognize that appraising real estate is a rather subjective task.  There is typically a reasonable range of value for a property rather than one exact right value.  We strive to apply as many quantitative tools as possible in the appraisal process in order to reduce the subjectivity.  This involves ongoing statistical analysis of the sub-markets which we serve.  We calculate time trends for lots, homes, and condominiums;  monitor marketing times, sale to list ratios, and construction costs for use in the preparation of standard form appraisals;  and track the supply/demand ratios for various market segments.  Our background in the commercial appraisal field tends to give us a more analytical point of reference than is normally found in purely residential appraisers.  We strive to take the time to describe our  observations and conclusions in a narrative fashion and to avoid standard boiler plate text in our residential appraisals.  

Located in Park City, Utah, we cover most of Summit and Wasatch Counties.  Please call us for a fee quote and current turn-around times.
