Although an appraiser must remain unbiased in performing an appraisal of a property, Divorce Home Appraisals can consult with you as a expert witness 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.
At Divorce Home Appraisals, all of our real estate appraisal reports meet or exceed the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and generally recognized industry standards, techniques, and methodologies. If, however, we are hired to appraise an interest that will eventually go to court, additional research is required to search out empirical data and peer-reviewed articles to further support a real estate appraisal valuation opinion. However, it should be understood that because a real estate appraisal opinion is generally regarded in the industry as an art and not a science, appraiser experience and skill level is extremely important in expert court testimony.
Our expert witnesses may be called upon to assist in case studies. As experts in our field, we can assist lawyers in evaluating their case, help determine if the claim has merit, and give specific and knowledgeable information to the council. An expert witness may be called upon to provide written statements. With our experienced and knowledgeable staff, Divorce Home Appraisals is qualified to testify at a deposition and/or trial with supporting documents and evidence.
