Real Estate Appraising:
Florida Statues require that all real estate and interests therein be appraised by an independent appraiser prior to being purchased by Collier County. Real estate valued $2,500,000 and greater requires two appraisals prepared by independent appraisers.
The Board of County Commissioners can waive the requirement for an independent appraisal on real estate valued less than $1 million. When waived, the staff real estate appraiser will prepare an appraisal.
If you have questions regarding appraisal services, please email Roosevelt.Leonard@colliercountyfl.gov
