Just Sold in Fort Lauderdale 

In many buildings in the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market the South East Corner is often in the most desireable corner of the buidling and the most expensive. This rule however is not always true.

We all know that is extremely hard to compare one home to another and if it weren’t there really would be no need to appraisers. As the true job of an appraiser is to find comparable properties and through a series of adjustments make the comparatives look more like the property being appraised and come up with a value based of making the homes look the same. A very specific approach in a market where every property has a story, most often this story never effects the appraisal.
