Appraiser Roster

Anytime you buy or sell real estate, you need a property appraisal. The primary purpose is to find out exactly how much your property is worth.appraiser Banks and similar lending companies also require it, before a buyer can obtain a mortgage.

An appraisal develops an "educated and trained opinion" on the value of the property. It also, in some circumstances, may ascertain the best use of the property, garnering the best selling price. For example, a long-time residential property may be in an area that has been rezoned for limited commerce, which could potentially bring in a higher sales price than marketing the real estate to potential residential buyers.

C.A.R. News Release:

California REALTORS® file revised ballot initiative to eliminate moving penalty on seniors, disabled and unlock housing market

LOS ANGELES (Aug. 7) In its continuing effort to address California’s unprecedented housing supply crisis and eliminate the “moving penalty” that ballot initiseverely restricts the ability of seniors, disabled residents, and victims of natural disasters to relocate, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) has filed a revised initiative with the Attorney General for preparation of title and summary for the November 2020 ballot. The new initiative would:

• Remove the “moving penalty” for seniors 55 and older, the disabled, victims of natural disasters, and those whose homes are located on contaminated property, allowing them to carry their current Proposition 13-protected property tax assessment level to another home of any price, anywhere in the state, any number of times.
• Eliminate intergenerational transfers of primary residences and other inherited property being used as income-producing properties without reassessment.
• Address abuses by commercial property owners who avoid property tax reassessment by means of “creative” transfers.

“Filing this new initiative will allow C.A.R. – in the event the ‘moving penalty’ is not eliminated this November – to immediately begin gathering signatures to qualify the new initiative for the November 2020 ballot and reinforce our commitment to making tax fairness a reality,” said C.A.R. President Steve White. “This new initiative will provide for property tax base portability, reform the intergenerational transfer laws, and address the true ‘split roll’ problem – corporations gaming the current property tax reassessment system. And, most significantly, it will raise money for schools and local governments,” stated White.

An initiative opposed by C.A.R. to tax commercial property at a higher rate than residential property has already qualified for the November 2020 ballot.

Last October, the Legislative Analyst’s Office issued a report in which it noted that the state is losing $1.5 billion per year due to parent/child and grandparent/grandchild property transfers. C.A.R.’s new initiative would require the child/grandchild to reside in the home (as opposed, for example, to renting out the home), and limit the value of the exemption to $1 million.

Current law requires at least 50 percent of a company to be transferred in order for reassessment of that company’s real property holdings to be reassessed. C.A.R.’s new initiative states that regardless of the increments of transfer, if a total of 90 percent of a company is transferred, the real property holdings of the company must be reassessed.

C.A.R. has already qualified an initiative for the November 2018 ballot, now known as Proposition 5, which addresses the “moving penalty” on seniors, the disabled, victims of natural disasters, and those whose homes are located on contaminated property.

California housing market loses momentum...

California housing market loses momentum in August as affordability crunch stifles home sales, C.A.R. reports

- Existing, single-family home sales totaled 420,360 in August on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate, up 1.1 percent from July and down 2.2 percent from August 2015.
- At $526,580, August's statewide median home price is at its highest level in nearly seven years.
- Year-to-date sales are down from the previous year for the second month in a row by 0.5 percent.

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 15) – California home sales downshifted in August as low housing affordability and a tight supply of homes for sale cut into demand, especially in high cost areas of the San Francisco Bay region, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today.

Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 420,360 units in August, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2016 if sales maintained the August pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales.

The August figure was up 1.1 percent from the revised 415,840 level in July and down 2.2 percent compared with home sales in August 2015 of a revised 429,900. Home sales remained above the 400,000 pace for the fifth straight month, but sales have declined year over year for the sixth consecutive month.
