Is the Government Appraiser Being Fair When Offering Me Compensation For My Property?
"Fair" is subjective. What seems fair to the government appraiser may not seem fair to you. That's because valuing real estate is not an exact science. Two different experts will likely come up with two different values for your property. Also, in my experience, the government will act just like any buyer and try buy your property for the lowest price that they can.
That's why having a qualified eminent domain attorney on your side can help you. An attorney can work with a team of experts on your behalf to try to maximize the value of your property.
