Did 3 appraisals for a gentleman who purchased two distressed properties @ $125K each along with an adjacent lot. Appraised the smaller dwelling for $175K. He has it sold for $200K. He came by the office to discuss the appraisal and I sat down with him and showed him the data I had to work with and explained the process. He agreed that we had nailed the value of the property. He agreed and gladly wrote us a check for the 3 appraisals. Not only did he pay and say thank you, he asked us to do 2 more appraisals for him on some other property. Sometimes it does pay to be an honest appraiser. By the way, he sold the smaller dwelling we appraised for $175k, for $200k, with the buyer paying the difference.
