Unless a formal appraisal is requested and contracted for, we provide
a Professional Opinion of Value (POV), not a formal appraisal. As such the work
product of the appraiser is not an appraisal but something distinct and less
than a formal appraisal due to the extraordinary limiting conditions under which
such professional services are here offered. The client should be informed
further that the POV is a work product that is not necessarily based on
first-hand inspection, that it is not fully researched, that it is not intended
for anything other than informational use, and specifically not intended for
important tax or financial purposes. It is only an opinion professionally
rendered, but not duly and fully researched. As opposed to a formal appraisal,
it does not take into account specific market issues, trends, or any other
important criteria that may affect value.
