Expert Witness Appraisal Service
At Fulton County Property Appraiser, all of our real estate appraisal reports meet or exceed the Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and generally recognized industry standards, techniques, and methodologies. However, if we are hired to appraise an interest that will eventually go to court, additional research is typically required to search out empirical data and peer review articles to further support a real estate appraisal valuation opinion. 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 also extremely important in expert court testimony.
A real estate appraisal expert must remain unbiased when testifying in a real estate matter. Therefore, we cannot be an advocate for either side, unless you hire us as a consultant and not as an appraiser. As a consultant, we can consult with you and advise you about the relative strength of an appraisal presented by opposing parties. We can also perform additional real estate research and analysis to support or discredit assumptions or conclusions. If hired as an appraiser, we must remain unbiased and neutral.
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, Fulton County Property Appraiser is qualified to testify with supporting documents and evidence, even at a deposition or a trial. With the use of our expert witnesses, your case will be argued with complete confidence and experience.
At Fulton County Property Appraiser we have experience in expert testifying and consulting and will be happy to discuss your specific needs. Contact us today at (404) 907-1846.
