I'm appraising a single family residence that has a zoning and a site that would permit a second unit. The seller of course thinks this nearly doubles his value. How would you address this in the appraisal to be clear but not inspire months of "hate" phone calls? It's being performed as-is and the contribution of a second unit varies by how big you'd build it. Seller insists that it could accommodate up to 1400 sq/ft, but that would be an overimprovement.
