The City of Lakes Community Land Trust (CLCLT) is seeking a small independent panel (3-6 individuals) of appraisers to provide fee simple, mostly non-lender, appraisals for the organization. Primary needs include appraisals on single-family, duplexes, condos and townhomes specifically in the City of Minneapolis for the following purposes:

New CLCLT Properties – Whether new construction, acquisition/rehab, or existing owner-occupied homes, the CLCLT is often in need of establishing third-party valuations of homes in the city of Minneapolis to satisfy public sector funding requirements or establishing a baseline value in order to make an offer on a property to an existing non-CLCLT homeowner. The CLCLT currently has the needs for this type of appraisal 8-10 times a year.

CLCLT Resales – The nature of Community Land Trust resales requires an appraisal to establish the future effective CLCLT price if/when a CLCLT homeowner decides to sell their home. The CLCLT anticipates there will be the need for 15-20 of these types of appraisals annually.

Conflicting or non-conforming Lender Appraisals – In some instances, lender appraisals fail to provide land valuations in the appraisal (required/needed by the CLCLT) or seem to use miss the mark on valuation. There are a couple of instances each year when the the CLCLT needs to substantiate value(s) to counter or further inform a mortgage lender appraisal. 

Please include your contact information and fee schedule in your email response to the position advertisement.
