They should consider both. You can allways question an appraisal. You can have an additional appraisal done as well.

You can absolutely challenge your Broward County Property Appraisal and Lori Parish's office is very open to reviewing individual files. Contact Joe Z. - and ask him what he thinks along with the details of your 'challenge'. From what I understand, they do take into account the condition of homes along with recent sales in the area. I have contacted Lori's office several times over the years and her staff is VERY helpful.

Hope this helps!

In general a brokers price opnion is a very good opinion of price. The comps used are very restricted to the exact location and dates of closing.
The condition of the house is most likely not taken into consideration. If this appraisal was for a short sale, it is nto in the banks interest to know the condition of the house, jsut the market conditions.

You could challenge to opinion if you have the comps to back it up, it cannot hurt.
