Expert Witness Testimony

Appraisal Source, Inc. offers a wide range of Real Estate Appraisal services, with experience in many types of property. We are also experienced in litigation support and expert witness services. Clients who have used our expert testimony services include government agencies, tax entities, financial institutions, lawfirms, and individuals.  In many cases, our independent, supportable analysis has allowed clients to settle cases without going to court. We have appeared on behalf or property owners and government authorities in numerious commissioners hearings associated with the Barnett Shale and TxDOT (Texas Department of Transportation) and have testified as expert witnesses in divorce and bankruptcy hearings.

An appraiser must remain unbiased in performing an appraisal of a property. But we can consult with you and advise you about the relative strength of an appraisal presented by opposing parties. We can also perform additional research and analysis to support or discredit assumptions or conclusions.

Some examples of issues we have experience with include:

  • Valuation of "stigmatized" property (flooded properties, etc.)
  • Valuation as of a date in the past (restrospective appraisals)
  • Valuation for condemnation and eminent domain cases
  • Effect on value of properties with history of flood
  • Estate settlement
  • Effect on value caused by insect infestation
  • Valuation for divorce, partnership, taxation issues etc.
With our experience and proven track record we are ready to take on any type of appraisal assignment and our appraisal values stand up under the most severe scrutiny.
