Due to the COVID-19 crisis, I want to assure prospective clients that current USPAP guidelines permit the development of Appraisal Reports with the use of digital photographs and "limiting conditions" such as first-hand inspection in certain cases. Please contact me directly to discuss how to move forward with your appraisal needs amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
