In regard to the article on teardown appraisals (“Some Fort Worth homeowners shocked by soaring land appraisals,” May 14), how could appraiser Randy McKechnie say “if someone pays that much for the land and razes the house, than the building really has no value”?
If that is so, how can TAD tax any home in teardown areas since they are worthless?
Just because someone with megabucks will overbid and destroy a perfectly fine house for whatever reason does not mean that it has no value to the rest of us.
Why are so many appraisers out in left field?
