What makes a property complex?

Complex properties include but are not limited to the following:

  • Properties in remote or rural areas (Pungo, Blackwater, Hickory, certain areas of Suffolk).
  • High-end homes.
  • Waterfront.
  • Homes with unusual style or design (geodesic dome, properties with a lot of odd angles).
  • Homes in need of a lot of repairs or renovation.
  • Homes with negative external influences such as homes located on a busy street, homes next to or near commercial properties, etc.
  • Homes in which there are few recent comparable sales in the market area.
  • Overimproved homes (For example, a 5,000 square foot home in a neighborhood of 1,000-2,000 square foot homes).
  • Underimproved homes (For example, a 1,000 square foot home in a neighborhood of 2,000-3,000 square foot homes).
  • Homes that do not conform to the neighborhood.
