Over the past thirty-five years Nelson Boswell, Jr., JD, SRA, Certified General Contractor, Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser, has personally appraised residential property of all types, single and multifamily up to many millions in value (for a single property).  He has also performed commercial real estate appraisals of convenient stores, warehouses, vacant land, retail space, and apartment buildings. All and all, these amount to thousands and thousands of real estate appraisals.

All of these types of properties were appraised as existing structures, or from plans and specifications.

Most of these appraisals have been performed in west Florida, from as far south as Naples on the mainland to and the Keys farther south to as far north as Panama City, centering around the Tampa Bay area.  However over the past 30 years appraisals have been performed throughout Florida from the interior portions of the state to up and down the east coast of Florida.

From an appraisal standpoint, we specialize in litigation appraisals of every type.  These primarily involve cases where a party has been damaged, or claims to have been damaged, by way of a loss in market value to their property.  Some of these cases may involve construction issues, another area of expertise held by Nelson Boswell, Jr., JD, SRA, Certified General Contractor, State Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser RD403.

We also do complex retrospective valuations.  The time period previous to the boom of the early 2000 to after the bust in 2008., with wildly fluctuating values requires additional training, education and expertise to perform competent retrospective property valuations and cost estimation.  These types of cases may also involve an analysis of the standard of care in light of USPAP (Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice).

With the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act, there have been many regulatory changes to the banking industry and Appraisal Industry.  Attorneys practicing in these areas involving banking, mortgage and appraisal regulation and law appreciate the knowledge of depth Mr. Boswell has on the subject.

Please call us immediately for a free consultation if you have any questions concerning a real estate appraisal for litigation purposes.  There is no obligation whatsoever.
