The Clarus Philosophy of the Consulting Appraiser
Clarus is Latin, meaning “clear” or “bright.” And in the active sense, it is to get clear. We help bring clarity to clients making complex decisions about real estate, its value, and its taxes.
Every decision is nothing more than a conflict between two or more courses of action.
- If we buy this, what happens to taxes?
- How do we allocate the price between real estate and goodwill?
- Should we seek a PILOT?
- What is the fractional interest of the decedents share?
- What is the case law on this issue?
We are driven by the proposition that the solution to these and other vexing challenges can only be answered by asking good questions. It’s not enough to be a real estate expert. There are lots of them. One has to be curious enough to uncover the client’s ideas about what the problem is and how to solve it. An expert with an uninformed solution is a mistake you’ll have to fix later.
That’s why we are different.
