“Direct Evidence of Value Impact: An Appraiser’s Perspective on Living with Wind Turbines”
—Michael S. McCann, CRA, McCann Appraisal, LLC (Chicago, Illinois, USA)
I can understand why some people have no clue as to what constitutes “direct evidence of value loss” when they have zero training or education as a professional appraiser. Further, when self-interest is placed above objective analysis by anyone, wildly different opinions are the result.
However, different does not mean equal. Being duly licensed, and with over 30 years experience in professionally evaluating the impacts of one land use on the value of another, please permit me to clarify.
There is a hierarchy of evidentiary value, or how reliable certain information is construed, vis-à-vis other forms of potential evidence.
