What is the Value of a Lot in Bel Air,CA i.e.: the coveted 90077?…
What is the value of a Vacant Land in Bel Air: the coveted 90077 zip code?
This sounds like an easy question, but a difficult one to answer. The other day I had an appraiser call me from out of area and wanted to know why and how I priced a vacant lot in Bel Air? Needless to say after a five minute conversation it was clear to me he was not from the area, never the less I felt it was my duty to give him help and have him price the property correctly.
I had to explain to him that it makes a huge difference if the Land is on Beverly Glen Blvd vs. if it is on Bellagio Rd. same sized lot could be worth a couple hundred thousand dollars vs. on Bellagio Rd it could be worth a couple million dollars.
Yes it is location, noise and comparable values of future homes. Ironically he was getting paid close to $1,000 and he had no idea. How sad, I personally would not have taken on the assignment if I was not familiar with the area and I would have declined the assignment based on lack of familiarity with the location. Oh well, not all of us are created equal. I was just glad the person that needed the appraisal got good information after a 25 minute phone call to me.
What would you have done if you were in a similar situation? Would you have stirred the appraiser to the right information? Would you have taken his call? I could go on and on.
I guess I am of the belief you do right to one person, maybe someday it will come back to you, i.e.: Karma! Needless to say I was glad I helped at least two people, the appraiser and well as the one who needed the appraisal.
