Fair Market Valuations

Rate Schedule for Fair Market Valuations


Sight-Unseen CMA

Description: Desktop research on the subject property and a hand-selected comparable analysis, based on my local market expertise (as opposed to an automated, Zillow Zestimate type of analysis). This does not take into consideration the condition of the property, which can drastically affect its value, and therefore I provide a range of value.

Best Use: To get an idea of a ballpark value that is more reliable than an online automated valuation, but not suitable for establishing a true value for settlement or trial.

  • Current Value Range: Free of Charge


Court-Ready Fair Market Valuation

Description: This includes a site visit, visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the property, pictures, an interview with the parties regarding their knowledge of the condition, improvements, and repairs, as well as an in-depth market analysis, MLS history on the property, and report to which I will testify, if called upon.

Best Use: To determine a neutral, reliable, and expert opinion of the value for either litigation / trial, or settlement purposes

  • Current Value: $400
