This is more of a vent than anything else. Subject is a site built single family residence which is currently bank owned with a purchase agreement in place. The subject is across the street from a high school track. Directly behind it is a large workshop and office with this site sharing the entry driveway with the subject. On one side I have a manufactured home community. On the other side it appears I have a wood workers shop and a parking lot for semi-trucks. So needless to say I have some external obsolescence here, which is pretty much reflected in the subjects sales price. The client is stating I need to provide 2 recent comparables with similar external obsolescence. Most recent sale on the street, which pretty much would be the poster boy street for external obsolescence sold in 2003. Not recent enough for the client. I have looked on 2 other streets in the market area which I also know have external obsolescence present for various reasons and still nothing recent. So now I am going through the long and tedious process of "vetting" my comparables by using Google earth and street views to determine if any have external obsolescence but won't really know until I actually go out and shoot the comps. The client is of course in a rush and wants me to say that none exist. But I don't really know if none exist without doing the research, which is taking a bit of time, which the client doesn't want to give me. I've put a lot of time into this thing already and really don't want to walk away from it but if the necessary time isn't given and the "requirement" isn't waived, I may just have to do this. What I would have liked to do is look at historical differences in market value of sales on my subject street and these other 2 streets where I know external obsolescences exists to determine a percentage adjustment, which I will still do, but the magical comparables are just not popping up for this one. Trying to get an AMC to realize that every home doesn't fit into a nice little box and that additional "requirements" take more time depending on the situation is like trying to get a politician to admit they are wrong.
