He recently decided to sell his 25% share to his two surviving brothers, who had already purchased the 4th brother's share shortly before he passed away. When my father contacted one of his brother's about it, he was told they felt the land (not including my grandmothers house and the acreage it sets on) was only worth $2500/acre. From research I'd done, I felt that number was very low. We are in Florida, so I called a real estate agent local to the Labadie area that I found online and she provided me with three appraisers I could call. I contacted one, explained the situation and told him I wanted this to be fair to all three brothers, and we were not trying to get a top dollar figure. We received his appraisal three weeks later, and he estimated the acreage to be valued at $7775 an acre. My uncle said that was too high and then took nearly three months to provide us with an alternate appraisal, which came in at what he offered, which by the way was less than what they paid for my deceased uncles portion back in 1999. I contacted the appraiser we had used and he looked over the 2nd appraisal and said there is no way that the land was worth so little. I also found out they did the same thing to my other uncle when he was forced to sell due to his declining health and medical bills. They offered far less than the two appraisals said it was worth, and obtained another appraisal showing it much lower. My father, who is 88 years old, is crushed by his brothers' actions, and doesn't know where to go from here. What do we do when we have a 62% difference between appraisals?<br \><br \>0 replies Wed, 28 May 2014 13:27:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-to-do-when-you-have-two-appraisals-with-a-62-difference-from-one-another/542889/ 2014-05-28T13:27:00Z Updating Current Home With Windows http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Updating-Current-Home-With-Windows/523368/ Hello All,<br/><br/>We are currently staying with our inlaws until we find a place of our own. It could be anywhere from a year to two years for our stay. With that said, the windows are the 40+ year old originals to the house. We'd like to replace a few of them because they are broken and need to be replaced. I have two questions, 1. Would that be a good investment if we plan to sell their house the time we move? 2. The company we may go with uses Vinylemax windows. Anyone heard of them before? We were wanting to get a middle of the road window. Looking for some advice.&nbsp;<br \><br \>7 replies Sun, 05 Jan 2014 14:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Updating-Current-Home-With-Windows/523368/ 2014-01-05T14:45:00Z Can anyone give me a cost estimate to add a bathroom and 250-300 sq ft addition... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-anyone-give-me-a-cost-estimate-to-add-a-bathroom-and-250-300-sq-ft-addition/475386/ I'm looking for a general cost to add a bathroom and about 250-300 sq ft.<br/><br/>The bathroom would be a 3 piece - toilet, stand up shower (tiled w/glass doors) and double vanity. It will be on a wall that has a bathroom/plumbing on the other side of the wall already. Also, the general cost to extend a bedroom out into the backyard of the house about 250-300 sq ft (I don't think any electrical would need to be added, basically just shifting a wall back). The house has vinyl siding on the back.&nbsp;<br/><br/>We are in the midwest, in Missouri. We would be doing most of the labor ourselves, besides construction/foundation and outside walls. In other words, we'd be purchasing/installing the toilet, vanity/sink, tile (but not shower) in the bathroom.<br/><br/>Also, while we're at it, how much money could we save drywalling/mudding/taping everything ourselves?<br/><br/>These are hypothetical questions, I'm just looking for very general cost estimates. Nothing super fancy, but not absolute lowest grade materials either.<br/><br/>Thanks!<br \><br \>5 replies Tue, 22 Jan 2013 18:38:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-anyone-give-me-a-cost-estimate-to-add-a-bathroom-and-250-300-sq-ft-addition/475386/ 2013-01-22T18:38:00Z does anyone know how to use the "Make me move" part of Zillow and how does it work. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-anyone-know-how-to-use-the-Make-me-move-part-of-Zillow-and-how-does-it-work/529816/ 1 reply Mon, 24 Feb 2014 21:23:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-anyone-know-how-to-use-the-Make-me-move-part-of-Zillow-and-how-does-it-work/529816/ 2014-02-24T21:23:00Z Cabinet stain that won't go out of style. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cabinet-stain-that-won%27t-go-out-of-style/529717/ My kitchen has solid wood custom made cabinets in great shape - however they look dated due to having the light oak stain from the late 1980's early 1990's, &nbsp;I would like a darker stain, but want to use one that will not go out of style soon since may sell sometime over the next few years when the market is better.
