On January 11, 1988, the first pretrial conference was held. The date of valuation of the property was established as July 2, 1987. Using that date, the Agency's appraiser, Whittlesey, submitted a trial appraisal valuing the subject property at $1,545,000, or $145,000 more than his original appraisal. Appellants submitted an appraisal done by Robert Flavell in which he valued the subject property at $1,950,000. Both appraisers stated that the highest and best use of the property was "as presently improved with a 30 unit apartment building." The case was then set for a mandatory settlement conference. In the interim, the Agency's attorney reviewed the Flavell appraisal and directed Whittlesey to also review and comment on the Flavell appraisal. Whittlesey reviewed the Flavell appraisal and advised the Agency's attorney and its executive director that there was nothing in it that caused him to change his opinion of the subject property's value.
The matter came to trial in March 1990. The only issue was the valuation of the subject property. Flavell, appellants' appraiser, testified that, as of July 9, 1987, the highest and best use of the subject property was its existing use as an apartment building. Whittlesey testified to the same effect. Both appraisers used the same methods to produce their valuations of the property, an income approach and a market data approach. They differed, however, on variables like comparable sales, gross income multipliers and fair market rents.
Appellants attack the Agency's appraisal and particularly the methodology of its appraiser, Whittlesey, as demonstrative of bad faith. Essentially, the same argument was made to the trial court. It involves an assessment of the evidence and particularly the qualifications, testimony, demeanor and credibility of Stephen Whittlesey. This assessment is best made by the trial court.
