Being politically connected isn't always a bad thing. Disadvantage is when your guy or gal doesn't get re-elected or is term limited out.

You would be better off going with an AMC.
Each home going up for sheriff's sale is appraised by three people, each paid $85 per home.

Each home going up for sheriff's sale is appraised by three people, each paid $85 per home. Appraisers say they often hit 20 homes in a day.

None of these people hold real estate appraisal licenses, according to the Ohio Department of Commerce's Web site, and the law doesn't require it. It only requires that they be Butler County residents and "disinterested freeholders," or landowners.

It sounds like they're not doing a report. What it sounds like is happening is three of the Sheriff's buddies meet up at the coffee shop, have breakfast on the taxpayers, they hop in one guys SUV and drive around to a dozen or more houses deciding off the cuff what they think each one is worth. For all we know at the end of the day they've seen a dozen or more houses and have a sheet of binder paper with an address and value for each property.

That is basically how it is done here by many county sheriffs.

One thing to remember is that the "report" they do is little more than a few paragraphs. Do NOT confuse it with a FNMA form or narrative. I would love to get that work!
