James Berry and his team at Candid Appraisals have assisted us in the evaluation of numerous investment properties over the last year. The level of detail and quality of analysis, well presented, was a key component of our investment process, helping us to evaluate whether to purchase or not, and at what price. Our most recent purchase, with James’ assistance, was bought earlier this year at a deep discount and is now under contract to close at year’s end with an annualized return of 48%. We were close to purchasing another distressed property this fall, but after James noted certain restrictions that neither the agent nor the seller disclosed, and showed how those restrictions might impact future valuations, we decided not to make an offer. I recommend James and Candid Appraisals to any lender, investor or purchaser without hesitation.
