With so much destruction from hurricane Ian in September, many homeowners face the FEMA 50% rule.  This applies to older homes which were built prior to current elevation requirements.  If the damage is over 50% of the market value of the improvements, the home needs to be raised or removed.   The property appraiser assessments are used unless another value is shown by a Certified Appraiser.  I have been performing these in recent weeks and find that the actual value of improvements is typically higher than what is shown by the County Property Appraiser.    If you find you need an appraisal, I am offering this service which hopefully will save homes from possible demolition.   

My fees vary according to where the job is and how complex.  I have offered specials to communities with multiple orders.   Feel free to contact me regarding this type assignment.   

Hurricane Ian is a historic storm and the clean up efforts are amazing.  My thanks to all that have come to our area to help with this massive task.
