One of the local brokers called this morning with an appraisal question in an area where I have no experience whatsoever. Perhaps someone can give me a simple reply that I could pass on to him (remember, we are dealing with a real estate broker here) Background: This broker is dealing with a gentleman who owns a 160 acre parcel that was purchased some years ago. At the time of purchase, everyone thought there were a lot of verbal agreements in place about easements but now it turns out that they would not hold water and the 160 acres is essentially landlocked. There will apparently be some court action to unlock the access utilizing a ROW or easement. What the broker would like to know is this: What is the methodology for forming an opinion of value for a ROW or easement? The easement would, of necessity, be 66ft with access to all potential owners of land for the legal splits of the 160 acres. In other words, how does one arrive at an opinion of the value of a ROW or an easement? Short answers that I can pass on would be appreciated.
