Please call me if you need an appraisal of a Burbank house, condo, or small residential income property to report current or retrospective market value for estate (date-of-death), buying, selling, lending, divorce, bankruptcy, tax, or insurance purposes.

Per page 14 of 2011 IRS Publication 559 "Survivors, Executors, and Administrators": "If a misstatement results in an underpayment of tax of more than $5,000, an addition to tax of 20% of the underpayment can apply. The penalty increases to 40% if the value or adjusted basis reported is a gross valuation misstatement. The IRS may waive all or part of the 20% addition to tax (for substantial valuation overstatement) if the claimed value of the property was based on a qualified appraisal made by a qualified appraiser."

Don't take a chance! Get an appraisal by a qualifed appraiser!! A BPO is a Broker's Opinion of current listing Price (by an advocate) and is intended to try to get a listing -- that's all -- a BPO is not an appraisal by an unbiased licensed appraiser.

I live and work in Burbank, California, am a licensed real estate appraiser, and have been appraising real estate since I graduated from USC in 1978, first on staff in a lender's appraisal department and then in a "fee appraisal shop." I started my own company, Burbank Appraisals, in 1986, accepting appraisal orders on residential properties (SFRs, condos, 2-4s) in the city of Burbank and have appraised over a thousand Burbank properties.

For your Burbank residential appraisal, I will personally check each subject property's permits at City Hall and double-check comps on MLS. By spending less time driving than appraisers trying to handle larger territories, I can offer my fastest turnaround time without your having to settle for the lesser quality of any of the work being completed by less-qualified trainees.
