This is a very complex question. For starters, most Estate Sales Professionals are not certified appraisers, and most certified appraisers are not estate sales professionals.

But it is unclear whether the positive numbers signal an improving real estate market or are just a short-term reaction to the availability of federal stimulus dollars. People hoping to cash in on the federal tax credit for home buyers pushed single-family home sales up 36.8 percent last month compared with May 2009, according to Warren Group, a Boston company that tracks local real estate. During the first five months of the year, sales are up 29 percent compared with the same ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

2. Unfortunately, I am a evicting a scam artist from my condo.  He signed a lease, got in and proceeded not to pay anything after part of the security deposit.  I have since found out that this scam, and flooring scams, are what he does for a living (he has nearly 20 unpaid and uncollectable judgements against him--he has nothing of value in his name).
