Expert Testimony for Court
Expert testimony is testimony given in relation to some scientific, technical, or professional matter by experts, i.e. persons qualified to speak authoritatively by reason of their special training, skill or familiarity with the subject. Expert testimony may be requested from the appraiser to explain his/her opinion of value determined by the appraisal report.
Sometimes all that is required is a signed and dated disclosure from the appraiser. Other times, the appraiser's testimony may be used to clarify issues, or even challenge assertions made by another party regarding the value of real estate in question. In either case, the professional, appraisers at Golden State Appraisals, Inc. are available to follow-up and provide whatever is needed to support their findings.
