Miami real estate news and information

Expert Testimony from a Realtor

 

We were recently asked to provide a comparative market analysis (CMA)  on three separate Miami propertiesexpert1for a court hearing… and were on standby,  all afternoon… as  expert witnesses.  

As Real Estate Experts, we regularly compile a market analysis  of relevant property sales, anytime we list or sell  real estate.  We  include properties that recently went under contract and/or sold … as well as those currently listed…  in order to determine an appropriate ‘offering price’ for  buyers looking to invest  real estate. 

I was surprised that the courts now request  CMA’s  from  Realtors though…as opposed to  requesting an appraisal through an appraiser… and surprised that expert witness testimony was something done (standby) via phone these days.  Times…. they-are-a-changing!  

Glad the phone didn’t ring while I was driving on the highway, racing through Miami International Airport, overseeing a home inspection, consulting with a roofer, or negotiating a sales contract that day.  Would have been less chaotic just being called in to court as an expert witness …
