Our Services

At Michael DeWan Appraisal & Associates, we have a wealth of experience in a wide variety of real estate valuation and consultation services. Rather than focusing specifically on one property type, one client group or one type of assignment, we are committed to providing the highest-quality real property appraisal service with every assignment we accept. Whether it be for mortgage purposes, a tax certiorari proceeding, an eminent domain taking, possible litigation, a municipal, county or state acquisition, a charitable donation of a conservation easement, estate planning, or in advance of marketing a property: for assignments where you need a well-researched, clearly presented, defensible and insightful professional opinion of value, we can help.

Over the years, we have been engaged by attorneys, financial and corporate clients, estate trustees, mortgage brokers, land trusts and other not-for-profit organizations, municipalities, public authorities and private property owners for real property tax disputes, divorce proceedings, estate planning, litigation support, asset management, consultation, expert testimony, appraisal review, public hearings and other purposes.

Below is a representative list of the types of real property we have appraised, the types of assignments we have performed, and the clients we have served. However unique or challenging, we welcome the opportunity to bid on – and if possible, take on – your next valuation assignment.
