Hi everyone. I made a brief appearance on this forum almost two years ago when I wrote an article about appraisal fraud (http://www.voiceofsandiego.org/articles/2005/12/30/housing/import-1113.txt)

I'm a reporter with voiceofsandiego.org. These days I no longer write about real estate, but I was hoping to get a few expert opinions from appraisers on what I think is a basic question about commercial appraisals.

Feel free to respond here or to e-mail me at [email protected]

Here's my question:

Generally speaking, in San Diego, is it cut-and-dry that if a piece of land is zoned as commercial, it is likely to be more valuable that if it is zoned as industrial or light industrial?

More specifically, in South-Eastern San Diego, would changing the zoning of a piece of land from light industrial to commercial be likely to increase the value of that land?

Or does the value of the land just depend on far too many variables to make such sweeping statements.

I have a certain piece of land in mind, so if any commercial appraisers out there want to see what I am talking about, feel free to contact me.

Many thanks

Will Carless

Can't seem to turn on PM

Hi George, I would love to send you a PM, but I can't figure out how to turn my PMs back on (newbie!)

Want to send me an email and we'll chat? [email protected]

Many thanks
