Eminent Domain Appraisals
Infrastructure is important to our day to day lives, from the roads we travel to the utility lines that power our homes and businesses. Eminent domain is an important part of the process by which infrastructure grows and changes with us. However, eminent domain is a sensitive matter that takes experience and quality effort, both in working with affected owners and in the estimation of value and impacts to property.
For over 20 years JMA has specialized in eminent domain, and has been a trusted source to consultants, highway departments, utility providers, municipalities, etc., to provide right-of-way acquisition appraisals for vital infrastructure projects.
Our staff of MAI-designated appraisers is experienced across a variety of property types, takings and impacts. Our team-based process allows us to get underway on projects and assignments quickly, establish consistent values quickly, and our focus on quality reporting and an internal review process assures timely delivery of reports that are clean, clear and easy to understand, and as such are reviewed and approved quickly.
Our reports help our clients routinely settle more claims, without the need for condemnation.
We work diligently with owners, to spend the time necessary to learn about their property and their concerns, and to adequately address those in our appraisals. We recognize that making an owner feel comfortable and heard is an important part of the overall process.
