About The Author

I’m the owner of Advantage Appraisals, LLC- a leading residential appraisal firm in the Phoenix Arizona market.  My company was formed in 2005 and I’ve been appraising homes since 2003 in Southern California.  In California, I was fortunate enough to cover LA, Orange and sometimes Riverside county.  With that, and some key clients came the opportunity to appraise some really cool homes of some really cool people including about 10 celebrity homes.  The most expensive home I’ve appraised was about 8 million dollars and it was situated between the homes of Will Smith and The Rock.

My family moved to Phoenix in 2005, and since there are a lot less celebrities out here, my adventures aren’t as interesting.  But there are always the homes that blow me away for one reason or another, and I’m talking both ends of the spectrum.

My objective of this blog is to build more web traffic for our company and to educate and entertain those who read it.  I love what I do and love sharing what I’ve learned about real estate.  If you have any questions about anything covered, please let me know.  And if you are interested in a real estate related topic not covered yet, let me know- sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you want to hear.  You are probably not the only one who wants to learn more about it.

If you have an appraisal need, contact us directly and let us know that you found us through the blog.  We are approved through many prominent lenders, are able to appraise any residence in Maricopa and Pinal county, and would love the opportunity to work with you.

  1. QuickQ? Does assessor full cash valuation (FCV) have anything to do with real world resale value? Example: Retiree looking at very nice single wide manufactured home at 45k, FCV is 35k; like homes (well kept/maintained) currently selling at 45+k-50k range. Average borderline single wide 35k; newer models 50k+…all below replacement values in home by home, block by block, etc., consideration.

    On average is there a quotient (FCVx1.y, etc) applicable via comparative recently sold properties I can figure to FCV, get ball park real world worth/ value? I always figure assessor FCV to be somewhat proportionately lower than real world current market value.

  2. way beyond my expertise admittedly. contact your assessor’s office for more information

  3. I loved this blog, well written, factual, and here’s wishing everyone getting a mortgage had to read this!

  4. Are Zero Lot Line homes valued less than homes that aren’t built right along the property line?

  5. all things being equal- yes. you’re right up against your neighbor. again, all things being equal, so if your zero lot line home has a view of a lake, it could be worth more than a normal lot with no view.
