Custom Homes and Residential Land Appraisals in Temecula Valley

I am qualified to appraise custom homes and residential vacant land in Temecula, Murrieta and the rest of the Temecula Valley based on my licensing level. Combine that with my experience appraising small custom homes ranging from under 1,000 sf up to high end custom estates at 15,000 sf of gross living area or larger. The high end custom home markets of De Luz, Wine Country, La Cresta, Santiago Estates and Wildomar, typically include full site fencing, elaborate driveways, hardscape and landscaping with gated entries, ponds, and oak trees that are either equestrian improved or ridge-line properties with panoramic views, all of which, are features that need to be considered in the Temecula Valley home appraisal.

The Temecula Valley including, Murrieta, La Cresta, Tenaja, De Luz, Wine Country, Aguanga and Anza; residential vacant land appraisals are typically for lots ranging in size from 1/2 acre up to 30 acres usually with varying topography and zoning.

With the ever changing landscape of Southwest Riverside County area including La Cresta, Tenaja, Wildomar, Menifee, Temecula Wine Country, Temecula and De Luz, and their continued growth, the line between suburban and rural property is continually changing. With these changes come residential vacant land issues that need to be addressed. Depending upon the lending community there are times where loans for land are available and other times like after the 2008, recession, where buyers have to pay cash. This is where I can assist the seller or buyer in verifying the market price for land, in the Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar, Aguanga, Anza, Sage and South Hemet market area. The changes in the line between suburban and rural is also reflected in the per acre value of your property.  I am also familiar with the Multi Species Habitat Conservation Program known as MSHCP and the HANS requirements that must be completed on land that falls within the Riverside County MSHCP Cell Criteria Area. This is an important item for those purchasing land, considering a lot split or development of a site they already own.

Since I started with high end properties in Malibu, Beverly Hills, Brentwood and other parts of West Los Angeles, during my initial mentoring (1992 to 1995), I have been able to build on that experience, so that I have a good understanding of the type of amenities that will be found in these type of properties and how they compare with other sales in the market area. In addition I have established a good rapport with several of the high end real estate agents who I work with on private party transactions where appraisals are required so that they too become a data source. Since 2001, I have completed over 750 custom home appraisals and 560 residential vacant land appraisals, here in Temecula, Murrieta, De Luz, La Cresta, Tenaja, Menifee, Wildomar, Anza, Aguanga, Sage, Lake Elsinore and Canyon Lake.
