I am wishing some one would climb aboard the Skippy wagon for real estate agents and appraisers and just shoot each and every one of them Double Dead. I am working on an appraisal that the subject was bought two years ago for $255,000.00 out of state owners from the big city on the big lake. The best I can do with it using similar comparables sales next to public DNR land in the area is $166,000. CMA Summary of the tri-county area ¼ each county; Current Sales in the past 12 months. LP: High 199,900 Low 64,900 Average 137,475 Median 143,450 Current Listings High 269,900 Low 79,900 Average 162,042 Median 166,400 Subject is 920 GLA above grade, 2 bedrooms 1 Bath with a walkout basement that is about 40% finished. The high selling sale is 1405 GLA 3 bedroom, 2 baths with a 90% finished basement, 3 more acres then the subject. 16 years newer. The high listing is 1680 GLA 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 90% finished basement and on 5 more acres then the subject. 15 years newer. Township has him at $27,900 land, $148,600 Improvements (includes a 3-c detached) FMV $166,000. They just re-assessed this township last year. I am getting so I just hate Mondays after I have worked on reports all weekend. Giving them what the market says it is instead of what they think it is after being huff and puff by others. I could jump the area and ignore other parameters and get the value, like the first appraiser did when they sold the subject.
