Luxury Home Appraisals

 

Southwest Florida’s Luxury Market

Buyers and sellers in the luxury market are typically well-informed, prudent, versed in available investment strategies, and knowledgeable about the real estate market. They most likely are attuned to current construction costs, the latest and greatest home technology, and amenities that are in demand. Luxury market participants are typically the trendsetters in the real estate market.

A luxury home encompasses more than the design, size, and features, it is a lifestyle. In Florida, a luxury home buyer may seek a location on the ocean or a golf course, in a fashionable gated community or in a city center. Proximity to high-end shopping, fine dining restaurants, cultural facilities, high-rated private schools, social and sports clubs, and other luxury homes are all considerations. Market participants desire security, privacy, prestige, and customization. A luxury home could have architectural significance, a storied history, or a prestigious address. These characteristics are all factors that influence the luxury home market.

 

What to look for in a Luxury Home Appraiser

The complexities of the luxury home market require the appraiser to have specific techniques for obtaining information from others and the skill set to work effectively with luxury home buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals. An experienced appraiser understands this and will be able to:

  • Recognize the market and marketing distinctions of luxury homes.
  • Recognize factors that influence the luxury home market and the property being appraised.  
  • Recognize the most important aspects of conducting a professional and methodical inspection. 
  • Effectively employ knowledge and experience and draw from their network of real estate professionals. 
  • Recognize the importance of adequately explaining and supporting the rationale of data selection and the weighted analysis of comparable properties.
  • Employ different accepted techniques to support value adjustments and recognize when an adjustment seems unreasonable.
  • Employ alternative methods and logic when comparing distinctive custom properties.
  • Develop and report a value supported by reconciled research, data analysis, and reasoning.

What the appraiser really is doing is proving what a purchaser in the market is looking for, what they expect, and what they are willing to pay for a property.

Stephen Ihrig has been honest, diligent, communicative, and detailed in his work for me. He went above and beyond communicating with me about his services while I am in the final stages of my divorce, when the majority of our marital assets are the real estate he appraised for me. I can’t wait to have him be my expert witness for my day in Florida court. Well earned reasonable fee. 100% confidence in SDI and Stephen. I have high standards for quality and I highly recommend!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stephen and SDI Appraisal and I must say I was thoroughly impressed by their professionalism and expertise. From the moment I first made contact, I felt reassured that I was in good hands. Stephen was punctual, respectful, and showed an incredible depth of knowledge about the housing market and appraisal process. He took the time to explain the entire procedure in detail, ensuring we were well-informed and comfortable every step of the way. The appraisal report itself was delivered promptly and was comprehensive, yet easy to understand. It provided valuable insights into my property's value and how it compares to others in my neighborhood. I was also impressed by the inclusion of clear, high-quality photos and detailed explanations for each valuation point. This experience has made me appreciate the value of a skilled, professional appraiser. I highly recommend Stephen and SDI Appraisal to anyone in need of a thorough and accurate home appraisal.

Steve was extremely informative and professional. He did some background research without charge and recomnended that I seek someone more local based on tge purpose for my appraisal and was kind enough to provide 3 additional referrals. Couldn’t have asked for anything more from a cold call. Thanks again for all your help Steve!

Steve completed an appraisal for a home equity line of credit we were seeking. I soon discovered he is a very dedicated professional; thorough, extremely knowledgable, and his analytical mind is impressive. I own a real estate brokerage, and rarely do I find an appraiser that has such a command of the nuances of my market - Steve certainly did. Thank you!

I would highly recommend! I called Steve for questions about a land encroachment issue hoping he could provide some direction. He spent an hour on the phone with me, then sent me a detailed email leading me to other people and resources. All his time, FREE. Please use his company!! He is very helpful and honest!
